...Thunderstorm Chances Through Thursday...

* Monsoon moisture will bring thunderstorms to the region this
  week, with the best chances extending through Thursday before
  diminishing into the weekend.

* A few light showers are occurring early this morning, with
  thunderstorms developing again this afternoon. Most areas will
  see a 25-50% chance of storms in the afternoon and early
  evening hours today and Thursday. Nocturnal showers and
  thunderstorms are expected tonight as well.

* Impacts will range from lightning, new fire starts, and strong
  outflow winds with blowing dust, to periods of heavy rainfall
  and flash flooding.

* Ensure you have a way of receiving weather alerts. If you live
  in a flash flood prone area, especially near a burn scar, be
  ready to act quickly if heavy rainfall occurs.
