PHOENIX — Thunder and rain storms appeared across the Valley Wednesday evening, also bringing rain to metro Phoenix.

A storm popped up around 4:30 p.m. near the Interstate 17 and Camelback Road in Phoenix, dropping .16 inches of rain, according to the Maricopa County Flood Control District rain gauges.

An earlier storm developed near Litchfield around 4 p.m., producing light to moderate rainfall, with more than .24 inches recorded.

The storms were capable of producing strong winds, frequent lightning, brief heavy rain and blowing dust.

Just over .12 inches of rain was recorded in Camp Creek.

The evening rain comes after storms dropped in Phoenix last week, where some wind gusts of up to 66 mph were recorded and highways were flooded.
