down. we've got a 30% of scattered showers through about 9:00. after we get a bit of a lull. but we've got a 20% chance through midday and through lunchtime. slight chance of a few spotty showers. but i think by the afternoon and into the evening commute we could see somewhere widespread showers and thunderstorms from the west valley to the east valley. a high of 85 today. we'll talk about when we start to dry out and that weekend outlook next mallory. and iris we have a new crash right now it's going to be eastbound and i pulled up our a-dot camera. you can't see the crash but you can see just how slow it is. it sounds like it's blocking the right center lanes. it sounds like a crash that turned into a car fire. you're definitely going to see those delays stack up. let's give you an idea of how it k loos right now. not a bad day so far on the 10 but now with that new crash i definitely think things could really slow down.

one. that one is producing some heavier rainfall and also quite a bit of lightning too. heads up if you live in the maricopa area. we're going to see more of these showers and thunderstorms develop through the day. and they're going to be tracking from southeast to northwest. so as they develop the valley's certainly in the path of any of these showers and storms that do fire up. just off to our east that is where we're going to see the more widespread showers and thunderstorms and rainfall too. we're talking upwards of an inch in some spots like cholo. so something to watch for if you are traveling over to maybe northeast arizona today and we've got to watch for strong storms from phoenix to tuscan. we'll talk more about the hazards we'll see with storms today. look at your 7-day forecast. next couple of days rain chances after that we start to dry things out as we head into the weekend mallory. >> and iris give you a check on the roads right now.

this morning and gradually warm into the 80s. a 30% chance of scattered showers this morning. a 20% chance for midday but here comes that higher chance. with a 40% chance of scattered showers and thunderstorms. and that potential really across the valley as we go into the afternoon with a high of 85 degrees. >> again, this morning could be a little wet for some of us. this afternoon i think we're gong to have to look out for some scattered thunderstorms. here's the deal. stronger storms especiallist eastern arizona. that darker green that you see here indicating the spots. and again that does include parts of the east and southeast valley. we're talking the threat of some strong wind gusts and that's why i mention the dust. possibly bringing some dust. so be on the lookout for that.
