Synopsis: Several waves of storms moved through the region overnight and this morning. Our well discussed low currently over the Colorado River Valley, will exit the state later tonight but not before several more rounds of scattered storms move east/northeast through the County. Flooding still remains a concern as isolated showers and brief periods of heavy rain over urban areas could impact low lying areas/roadways as well as rural desert washes and streams flow.
For today, expect mostly cloudy and isolated showers to continue into the afternoon/evening hours. High temperatures will top out near 64°F - 67°F for the Valley. Flash flooding concerns continue for higher terrain areas north and east of the Valley. Additional rain on the already saturated watersheds will lead to increased runoff in washes/streams. Larger waterways in the Central and East Valleys have had considerable flows (New River, ACDC, Skunk Creek, Indian Bend Wash) and runoff could be problematic again as new storms pop up over their watersheds. Ponding water still a concern for urban areas. Storm activity will slowly taper off into the overnight hours for the Valley and overnight low temps will dip to the upper ‘40s to low ‘50s.
For tomorrow, isolated early morning showers will be possible under partly cloudy skies but will end by late morning/early afternoon. Afternoon highs only getting into the mid-‘60s for the Valley. Overnight temperatures will dip down into the upper ‘40s. For Saturday, expect mostly clear skies with afternoon highs in the low ‘70s. The outlook for the weekend is calm, mostly clear conditions and cool with highs hovering in the low ‘70s.
