PHOENIX — The monsoon is back in action across Arizona bringing strong winds, blowing dust, lightning, and rain!
Storms chances will continue each day through the weekend as monsoon moisture continues to flow in.
We could see more blowing dust, too!
So, if you see dust blowing in, stay inside until after it clears. Breathing it in has been linked to cases of Valley fever, which could cause long-term health issues.
Ozone pollution will climb by the end of the week and could reach unhealthy levels. An Ozone High Pollution Advisory is in effect on Friday and High Pollution Watches are in place for Saturday, Sunday and Monday.
Daily highs will peak between 104 and 109 degrees across the Valley with early morning lows in the 80s.
2022 Rainfall totals:
Sky Harbor Official Rainfall: 0.56" (-2.37" from average)
