Monsoon showers remain in forecast, drying out by weekend

KINGMAN – Chances for monsoon showers and thunderstorms in northwest Arizona will increase Wednesday evening and into Thursday, with a “downward adjustment” in precipitation chances over the weekend, the National Weather Service reported Wednesday.

Scattered storms are expected today with the best chances over southern Mohave County, as well as eastern San Bernardino County in California and the mountains of southern Nevada.

The primary threats are gusty winds and heavy rain. Isolated flash flooding is possible with training or locally intense storms. Rainfall rates could be up to 1.75 inches an hour.

“More showers and thunderstorms are expected today and Thursday before some areas begin to dry by the weekend,” NWS meteorologist Reid Wolcott said.

Overall, he expects less activity than the past few days. However, moisture remains in place Friday and beyond, and so do chances for storm activity, he added.

Temperatures will increase as chances for storms gradually decrease across the lower Mohave Desert.
