Storms hit Valley, chances continue through weekend

PHOENIX - Showers and storms pounded parts of the Valley Thursday night and the threat for more continues through the weekend.

Buckeye picked up over a half inch of rain as a severe thunderstorm moved through.  0.30" of it fell in just a 10 minute span, quickly leading to flash flooding. Powerful winds downed trees and overturned several mobile homes, as well.

Strong storms also hit Wickenburg and Wittmann and a Flash Flood Warning remains in effect between Wickenburg and Buckeye until after 1 a.m. as runoff continues.

Other areas across the Valley also saw rain, thunder and lightning as the storms moved through.

Monsoon moisture will increase Friday, Saturday and Sunday bringing even greater storm chances and cooler temperatures to the forecast.

In the Valley, we're looking at a 20 percent chance of storms Friday and 30 percent chances over the weekend with the potential of heavy rain and flash flooding in some locations.
