Hurricane Sergio remnants expected to bring scattered storms to Arizona

Arizona is expected to have scattered storms for the rest of the week and into the weekend, said meteorologist Larry Hopper of the National Weather Service in Phoenix.

Hopper said the moisture comes with Hurricane Sergio, which will cause storms in the southeast and over Mexico. The highest amount of moisture will come at night, Hopper said.

“There will be a little break on Friday,” he said, “But, it will pick back up for the weekend on Saturday.”

Hopper said meteorologists expect another disturbance that will come from the west over the weekend.

Rainfall totals of only a few hundredths of an inch are expected across much of the area Friday, according to a Weather Service forecast. Highest rain totals are expected across far southern Yuma County where up to a quarter-inch is likely before rain tapers off in the afternoon, the forecast stated.

On Saturday, most areas will only see around a tenth of an inch.

The Phoenix area has received a lot of rain recently.

Last week, remnants of Hurricane Rosa dumped more than 2 inches of rain on the city, making this month the third-wettest October in recorded state history.
