PHOENIX — Arizona is well known for being a dry and sunny state, so when rain finds its way in the Valley, local residents might be a little surprised.
For the second straight day, rain came pouring down in the Phoenix area.
The storm rolling through the Valley is suspected to be from what was once Tropical Storm Javier in Mexico.
Not too much rain was expected from the storm, as meteorologist Marvin Percha said, “Rain amounts may be a half to even as much as an inch in a few spots.”
A flood warning was issued for the southwest valley until 10:45 p.m. Wednesday night.
On Tuesday, someone watching the storm in downtown Phoenix was able to get a cool video of a dust storm rolling through.
