Isolated storms develop, but become more scattered through the afternoon and evening hours, peaking at a 40% coverage. We have a First Alert Weather Day in effect this afternoon, with an isolated stronger to severe storm possible. Gusts winds are the main threat, plus some excessive rain in spots could create brief flash flooding.

It is another hot one, with a high of 95 degrees, but it feels about 10 degrees warmer, which is why there is a Heat Advisory in the Valley until 8 PM.

Tonight will be partly cloudy, with spotty rain and storms developing and moving through at times. The low is around 74 degrees again.


Storms continue at a 40% coverage through the end of the week. Thursday goes from spotty most of the day, to scattered in the evening. Then we’ll more storms throughout the day on Friday. Both days are in the low 90s, but the humidity makes it feel about 10 degrees warmer.

This builds up to a 60% coverage at times in rain and storms Friday night through Saturday. This takes from the low 90s to the upper 80s, before rain becomes spotty Sunday.

In your First-Alert 8-day planner, next week starts off sunny and dry, with spotty rain Tuesday building to scattered Tuesday night into early Wednesday.
