PHOENIX — Arizona's monsoon pattern is getting powered and pumped up with tropical moisture Wednesday, bringing the potential for storms for the remainder of the workweek and weekend Storm chances will start to increase on Wednesday followed by an explosion of activity in Arizona Thursday through the weekend. Friday and Saturday have the potential to put out the heaviest rainfall. Flooding is a major threat but we also run the risk of strong winds and frequent lightning. Rainfall amounts by the end of the weekend could reach 1-2 inches over south-central Arizona with a few inches for the higher terrain and possibly even higher totals for southeastern Arizona.
