PHOENIX — Showers and isolated storms brought moisture and high wind speeds to the metro Phoenix area on Wednesday afternoon.

Cave Creek got most of the water as of 6:20 p.m., according to the National Weather Service. However, the showers and storms progressed southbound to rain over parts of Surprise, Glendale, Scottsdale and Phoenix.

NWS warned locals to watch out for gusty winds. Some of the winds will rage on at speeds higher than 30 mph.

However, those in the Valley can expect the rains to weaken as they progress further south, NWS said.
