air masses, that's the storm chance for today that will move into the phoenix by the afternoon, and eventually, a cold front will move through and brings us storm chances in the valley. futurecast, as you step outside this morning, we'll be dry through the early morning commute and watch for showers and storms to the west and northwest first, and notice towards know noon time to lunchtime, the storms will get closer t western maricopa county will be the place to watch and areas to the northwest. kingman, scattered storms through the morning. as we get in the afternoon in the valley, watch the line of storms that move to the east and storms are more scattered, not as widespread over the phoenix metro but at least a chance of scattered storms across the phoenix metro this afternoon. some could be on the strong side and it will continue to
overnight, the cooler air will set into the valley and we'll get the drier air in, too. by tomorrow, clearing out the storm chances. so a 10% chance for a shower or thunderstorm after 9:00 this morning and i think it won't be until 3:00 to 6:00 that we see the best potential for thunderstorms in the phoenix metro. but again, a gradual increase and keep the abc15 mobile app when the storms head into the valley. any wind will have the potential of being strong especially west, northwest, strong winds, heavier downpours and small hail is not out of the question with storms that do fire up. we do have the threat of at least some severe storms in northwest arizona. temperatures will only top out at 90 but tomorrow, down in the 80s, and i have to detail out the weekend forecast further
