PHOENIX — Rainfall reached parts of the Valley Friday afternoon, with chances for more storms increasing throughout the evening.

The storm, originating from Hurricane Kay off of Mexico’s coast, was moving from west to east, making landfall in Goodyear with over half an inch of rain recorded by 5:50 p.m., according to the Flood Control District of Maricopa County.

One rain gauge in Phoenix captured over one-tenth of an inch, while another in Avondale saw just under one-tenth of an inch.

In the East Valley, Ahwatukee, Chandler and Gilbert saw .04 inches.

A flash flood warning was issued in parts of Maricopa County until 9:30 p.m., as the strongest storms could produce localized flooding.

Blowing dust and winds gusts of up to 40 mph could enter the Valley, NWS said.

Chances for rain were at 20% during the day and increase to 60% by the evening, with up to half an inch of rain forecasted to fall during the storm.

State Route 238 closed in its entirety between Gila Bend and State Route 347 in Maricopa due to flooding in the area, according to the Arizona Department of Transportation.
