Prepare for Severe Weather Hazards

Severe weather hazards in Phoenix​ typically consist of extreme heat and thunderstorms. It is important to recognize the dangers of extreme heat and the symptoms of heat-related illnesses such as dehydration, heat exhaustion, and heat stroke, and reduce exposure to the sun and heat during peak hours.​

Thunderstorms can produce lightning, high winds, and heavy rains. A thunderstorm can cause hazardous localized flash flooding, and dust storms that reduce visibility and cause unhealthy air quality.​

Know the hazards in your community and where you travel. Get current weather forecasts at weather.gov/phoenix, on TV, on the radio or online. Go to EIN.az.gov​ and enter your address in the hazard viewer to learn about hazards in your area. View the latest hourly air quality forecasts at azdeq.gov/forecasting​.​
