...Another Round of Thunderstorms This Week...

* Another surge of monsoon moisture will bring back thunderstorms
  to the region this week, with the best chances being today,
  Wednesday, and Thursday.

* Each day today through Thursday, most areas will have a 20 to 40
  percent chance of seeing a storm in the afternoon and early
  evening hours. Nocturnal showers and thunderstorms are possible
  tonight and again Wednesday night.

* Impacts will range from lightning, new fire starts, and strong
  outflow winds with blowing dust, to periods of heavy rainfall
  and flash flooding.

* Ensure you have a way of receiving weather alerts or monitoring
  radar on your phone. If you live in a flash flood prone area,
  especially near a burn scar, be ready to act quickly if heavy
  rainfall occurs.
