The storm hit so hard in the Catalina Mountains that the Coronado National Forest on Friday said several recreational areas were temporarily closed.

The closure included trails within the Sabino Canyon Recreation Area, Pusch Ridge Wilderness and Santa Catalina Mountains.

Monsoon activity is expected throughout southern Arizona for the rest of the weekend.

A flash flood watch remains in effect for the Tucson area until Saturday evening, according to the National Weather Service.

The system is expected to taper off Sunday evening.

Phoenix reported similar storm damage, the Associated Press reported.

In Scottsdale, city officials reported outages in the city’s Old Town district and South Scottsdale. Crews have been working to restore power and clean up debris. Multiple streets in flood-prone areas have been closed.

In more urban areas like Phoenix, there are flood risks on highways, streets and underpasses. Drivers are being advised not to try to cross any flooded path, the AP reported.

One positive for Phoenix residents: temperatures around Phoenix are expected to stay below 90 degrees Fahrenheit through the weekend.

Mud is in good supply at the CDO wash and visitors are warned to be careful.
