Early morning thunderstorms moving northwest

PHOENIX (CBS5) -

Many Valley residents woke up to wet roads and the sound of rain on their rooftops this morning.

Rain and thunderstorms started to develop in the early hours and continued to move northwest out of the Valley.

The West Valley was at the center of the action early this morning with lightning, gusty winds and rain. Rain totals vary between nothing to .21" of rain in the past six hours. Litchfield Park registered about .11" of rain. Rain totaled .03" at the Scottsdale Airport.

The National Weather Service issued a flash flood watch for parts of Mohave County. That watch should expire by 8 this morning.

Rain also fell in Tucson, helping to settle some of the particulates from yesterday's dust storm.  

The wall of dust and thunderstorm activity between Tucson and Casa Grande never made it's way completely into the Valley last night but thunderstorms sparked first thing this morning.

The storms first developed from Gila Bend to Buckeye then continued to move west. Even the East Valley saw some rain, just not much. Rain totals were .03" at the Scottsdale Airport.

After a record amount of rainfall in Flagstaff yesterday, close to an inch of rain, more thunderstorm activity is expected today.

As far as the Valley, temperatures will be not as hot today with highs only around 100 degrees. Humidity is high so it will feel much warmer than usual.

There is still a chance for thunderstorms in the Valley later today, although the chances are not great. 

We will dry out a bit Friday and this weekend. Temperatures will be on the rise. By Sunday highs should reach 110 degrees.

The Valley's next good shot at monsoon moisture will be moving in by the middle of next week.
