According to the National Weather Service in Bellemont, scattered thunderstorms are expected to develop each afternoon along the Mogollon Rim and White Mountains from Wednesday into the weekend. Storms will move toward the southwest into Yavapai and Gila counties during the mid-afternoon to mid-evening hours. Deeper moisture and high instability in these areas will bring a risk of strong thunderstorms and localized flash flooding. Thursday afternoon and evening currently looks like the highest risk of these conditions. Strong to possibly severe thunderstorms with frequent lightning, hail, strong wind gusts and heavy rain with localized flash flooding are possible. Burn scars including the Goodwin Fire scar near Mayer, will be at risk for flash flooding.
