Monsoon storm rolls through the valley

Posted: Updated:
PHOENIX (KSAZ) - A summer monsoon thunderstorm has made it's return to the valley.

The storm is welcome relief after a week filled with high temperatures and some days prompting an excessive heat warning.

Just after 4:30 p.m. Friday the storm made it's way across Pinal County sending a wall of dust ahead of it blanketing the valley.

The National Weather Service in Phoenix issued a dust storm warning lasting until 7 p.m. for Maricopa and Pinal Counties.

Travelers on I-10 were seen pulling to the side of the road as dust traveled north.

The storm left it's mark in Pima County where there is a report of a small rock slide on Mt. Lemmon.

In Flagstaff, storm clouds were seen in the distance.

And across the Phoenix metro area close to 10,000 SRP customers were without power.
