More showers, T-storms expected in Phoenix area

Posted: Updated:
PHOENIX (AP) - Two days after the Phoenix area experienced flooding from heavy monsoon rain, the forecast calls for more showers and thunderstorms in the region with a possibility of more flooding.

The National Weather Service says a potent low pressure system is moving through the area Thursday likely producing periods of very heavy rain and gusty winds.

The forecasters also say there's a threat of flooding of low-lying areas and washes in the Phoenix area, as well as in Yavapai and Coconino counties to the north.

Storm runoff on Tuesday closed parts of several highways north of Phoenix and flooded several homes. It also forced rescues of numerous stranded motorists and caused minor evacuations.
