PHOENIX — The monsoon is back in action across Arizona bringing strong winds, blowing dust, lightning and rain!
Sunday was another eventful day in Arizona with scattered strong to severe thunderstorms, producing heavy rain, strong winds, lightning, and blowing dust. Heavy rain in Flagstaff also prompted Flash Flood Warnings to be issued earlier today!
We're continuing to tap into moisture from Tropical Storm Celia off the western coast of Mexico. So, we will keep at least of chance of storms in the forecast each day next week.
Continued blowing dust added to Ozone pollution has prompted an Ozone High Pollution Advisory again today and Monday. A High Pollution Watch is in effect for Tuesday of next week.
