Rain began moving into central Phoenix Thursday evening, hours after a massive dust storm rolled across the Valley and heavy thunderstorms pounded the West Valley, damaging homes and downing power lines.
Downtown Phoenix saw rainfall as storm cells developed over the area around 8 p.m., National Weather Service spokesman Marvin Percha said.
Percha said the cells were unlikely to bring severe weather to the area as most of the storm activity across the Valley was tapering off. He said the central Phoenix storm would likely move toward the northeast Valley as the evening went on.
The National Weather Service issued a severe weather advisory for all of Maricopa County just after 6:45 p.m.
Minutes earlier, the weather service issued a dust storm warning for a widespread area, including Phoenix, Mesa, Chandler, Peoria, Fountain Hills and Anthem. A severe thunderstorm warning was also issued for parts of the southeast Valley.
Just before 8 p.m., a severe thunderstorm warning was also issued for areas of the west Valley including Glendale, Avondale, Tolleson and Peoria.
Most of the rainfall hit the West Valley, with the heaviest amount falling in the Surprise and Sun City areas. The Rainbow Valley area west of Estrella Mountain Ranch saw damage to several homes and downed power lines.
The storm tore the roof off of a Buckeye Valley home in the far West Valley and downed multiple power lines in the area, the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office said. No one inside the home was hurt.
Around 6:30 p.m., a wall of dust could be seen moving into the Valley from the south. Areas of Chandler and Gilbert were among the first hit, as the wall of dust continued engulfing the region.
Thunderstorms were moving toward the Valley from the south behind the dust, with the West Valley taking the brunt.
The Arizona Department of Transportation said that it was hailing near State Route 347 at Riggs Road just before 7 p.m.
A severe thunderstorm warning was issued for Surprise, Sun City and El Mirage just after 6:50 p.m. and was set to expire by 8 p.m. Measurable rain was reported in those areas, including nearly 0.9 inches west of the Loop 303 in Surprise.
