Tropical storm Javier wreaked havoc on Arizona for two days, but now the system is beginning to conk out. Dave Von Der Heide with the National Weather Service in Flagstaff says, the once ferocious storm still has enough oomph to dump more rain in the high country. He predicts a 30% chance of additional
precipitation for Thursday. Von Der Heide says there were numerous thunderstorms Wednesday, but flash flood warnings were for just a few places like Sedona, which saw about 2 inches of rain, and the Mogollon Rim.And he adds, the weather caused no major problems with flooded washes or roads.
In Florence, the heavy rain was enough to strand a Ford pickup truck driver,who was rescued by Pinal County Sheriff Deputies. (pictured) Arizona is expected to begin drying out as early as Thursday. And with that drying out, Marvin Percha with the National Weather Service in Phoenix says, things will be heating up, and by Sunday, the high for the Phoenix Metro area should top near 107 degrees.
