Storm brings gusty winds, cooler temperatures to the Valley

PHOENIX (FOX 10) -- Just days after the Valley saw its first 100°F day of 2019, a storm has brought gusty winds and cooler weather to the Valley and other parts of the state.

According to the National Weather Service in Phoenix, the high on Monday was 86°F, which was recorded at 1:49 p.m., and the low on Monday, 77°F, was recorded at 1:19 p.m.. The storm also brought wind gusts up to 50 MPH in parts or the Valley and the state.

The storms were widely scattered, and no significant rain fell, but an apparent lightning strike did cause a palm tree fire in Peoria, near 83rd Avenue and Thunderbird. The woman who took the video, identified as Taryn Maloney, said she saw it happen right outside of her bedroom window. She said it was very loud and super bright.
