PHOENIX — Metro Phoenix experienced another dose of monsoon season 10 days after receiving its first measurable rain since April 27.

The National Weather Service issued a Flash Flood Warning for Maricopa County around 6:10 p.m. to last until 10:30 p.m. Storms followed shortly afterwards.

With winds coming in from the north, storms were first reported in the area near Sun City and Surprise and quickly worked their way south.

Another storm cell generated from the east in the Fountain Hills area before converging on Scottsdale, Phoenix and Glendale.

As of 8:54 p.m., parts of Fountain Hills received more than than half-an-inch of rain and other parts of the Valley received more than 1 inch.

Phoenix Sky Harbor would go on to set a daily rainfall record with .25 inches, breaking the record set on July 3 in 1927.
