PHOENIX (AP) - Parts of Arizona could see more rainfall Saturday, a day after brief but powerful monsoon storms hit parts of metropolitan Phoenix.

The National Weather Service says moisture from Tropical Storm Dolores is expected to sweep through the region this weekend, boosting the chances of thunder and heavy rain.

Suburbs west of Phoenix including Tonopah and Wickenburg got drenched Friday evening with more than half an inch of rain.

A microburst slammed Goodyear and Avondale.

High winds around 35 to 40 mph uprooted and snapped trees causing some damage in that area.

But no injuries were reported.

Strong winds and rain were also reported in Bullhead City.

Forecasters also warn the rain could bring flash flooding and multiple flood watches are in effect around the state.
