PHOENIX — Monsoon season finally tried to make its mark in the West Valley on Thursday.

A storm brought dust and rain to Buckeye, Avondale and surrounding areas, attempting to make up for what’s been a lackluster monsoon season so far.

Dust was the more disruptive force, with it limiting visibility on Interstate 10 for drivers making their evening commute.

Some rain gauges near Buckeye recorded up to two-tenths of an inch of rain in the 5 p.m. hour.

The National Weather Service in Phoenix issued a significant weather advisory for areas near Buckeye in the 6 p.m. hour.

Winds up to 40 miles per hour, strong thunderstorms and dust were expected to continue pelting the area.
