PHOENIX — Get ready for some monsoon action across Arizona this week.
Storm chances return to the Valley starting Tuesday and continue each day through the weekend.
Most days we'll see just a slight chance of spotty showers and thunderstorms, but we'll have to watch out for gusty winds and blowing dust too.
The Arizona Department of Environmental Quality has issued High Pollution Watches on Tuesday and Wednesday for the potential of blowing dust in the Valley.
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.
Highs will peak near 106 on Tuesday and Wednesday before climbing up near 110 on Thursday.
That increased heat will coincide with an increase in storm chances on Thursday here in the Valley.
Early morning lows will be in the 80s throughout the week.
2022 Rainfall totals:
Sky Harbor Official Rainfall: 0.56" (-2.37" from average)
Valley Average (Phoenix Rainfall Index): 0.71"
