A giant wall of dust near Phoenix says the summer monsoon season in Arizona is back. A thunderstorm in the area on Friday afternoon pushed this massive wall of dust out ahead of it. Travelers on an area highway were seen pulling over to the side of the road as the dust cloud moved north. The storm itself was a welcome relief for Phoenix area residents. They've been dealing with high temperatures and periodic excess heat warnings. Local media reported that temperatures were as high as 116 in Phoenix earlier this week. Forecasters say the city can expect cooler weather this weekend.
