Forecast: Well, as I stated to you two weeks ago, the monsoonal flow would return around this time and here we are.  I have officially issued the Severe Thunderstorm Watch and this means that thunderstorms capable of damaging winds, hail, flooding, and frequent lightning will be likely. 

Instability is very high across the area, owning to less debris clouds in the watch area.  Storms should erupt more this afternoon through evening through the issued zones above. 

Due to how slow these storms will move and some very erratic, the flood risk is extremely high with the heaviest cells.  Travels on I-15, I-10 and through the Gorman Pass will need to be met with caution, especially through the Metro High Desert zones.   These same areas may get hit again over the next few days, as previously mentioned.
