The area of high pressure to our east will keep moisture in place for the rest of the week. That means our shower and thunderstorm chances for Friday afternoon stays around 10 percent.

The better chances are along the Mogollon Rim and in the higher elevations east of the Valley, but we could see a few storms make it into the Valley as well.

Going into late Friday, we'll see moisture start to increase in Arizona from the south..

Weather models continue to indicate that we could see a tropical depression track north through Baja California and into our state by the weekend. As this plays out, we will see better chances for more widespread, heavy rainfall Saturday afternoon through Monday.

Local flooding will be something we will also be monitoring closely.

As we start to see this surge in moisture, we'll see temperatures fall closer to normal by Friday.

Highs will top out in the low 100s Saturday and into the low 90s on Sunday with upper 90s and low 100s again early next week.
