PHOENIX — Monsoon 2022 is bringing more storms to Arizona.

Here in the Valley, showers and thunderstorms could linger through the overnight hours and then we'll have another chance Friday evening.

Watch out for gusty winds, blowing dust, lightning and brief downpours with any of the storms that move in.

Heavy downpours and flash flooding near our wildfire burn scars have been the biggest threats across the high country and will be again on Friday.

As high pressure remains near the Four Corners this weekend, temperatures will continue to top out above 110 degrees and monsoon storm chances will stay in the forecast.

We're also tracking air quality as ozone pollution reaches unhealthy levels over the next couple of days.

An Ozone High Pollution Advisory is in effect across the Valley through Friday and we are now under an Ozone High Pollution Watch for Saturday. If you have any respiratory conditions, like asthma or COPD, limit your time outside or you may have difficulty breathing.
