October rain not over yet? Dust and thunder return to the Valley

Parts of the Valley were slammed with hail and heavy rain on Tuesday.

PHOENIX — This month is already the wettest October in Phoenix's history, but it looks like the rain is not finished yet.

The National Weather Service Phoenix issued a string of warnings in the early afternoon Tuesday as scattered storms started to reach east of Phoenix.

Just in time for the evening commute, dust entered the southern outskirts of the Valley while Scottsdale received some rain.

The storms produced hail in north Scottsdale and in the Peoria/Anthem area.

The rain had largely cleared from the Valley by 8 p.m.
