Weekend storms bring heavy rain, flooding to metro Phoenix

Saturday’s storms brought heavy rain to many parts of the metro Phoenix.

North central Phoenix, north Scottsdale and Cave Creek saw the hardest downpour with 1 1/2 to 2 inches of rain. Areas that saw the heaviest rain also experienced flooding.

Austin Jamison is a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Phoenix. He says the new week will bring a drying trend for the Valley. 

“As we go into Monday or Tuesday, we get into some drier air and storm chances trend down closer to 10% or so," Jamison said.

Jamison says storm chances may pick back up toward the end of the week with a rise in forecasted humidity.
