Thunderstorms are expected Wednesday and Thursday in northern Arizona. The heavy rain may hit burn scar areas in the San Francisco Peaks and the Yavapai County Mountains.

National Weather Service Flagstaff meteorologist Megan Taylor says there is increased risk for flash flooding in recent burn areas. 

“Any storm can cause impacts during monsoon season so just be aware every day during this time of year. And make sure to have a good way to receive warnings, and know that flash flooding can occur from rainfall even if it's not raining where you are," Taylor said.

She also advises residents to have an emergency action plan in place in case of flooding.
