PHOENIX (CBS5) -

The threat of severe weather hung around on Monday even as residents were busy cleaning up from weekend storms.

Heavy rain triggered street flooding in the small Arizona town of Eloy. Roads were completely covered by water. The CBS 5 News helicopter showed cars stuck in the mud.

Plenty of homes and even some schools dealt with flood waters, too.

A flash flood warning was issued and later canceled for a section of Pinal County Monday afternoon, according to CBS 5 meteorologists in the Valley Pinpoint Forecast Center.

A blowing dust advisory was in effect until 3 p.m. for parts of Pinal County as well.

In Apache County, a local storm spotter reported 2 inches of rain in less than one hour. The spotter said between 2 to 3 inches of water was flooding the Highway 180 and Highway 191 intersection.

There was a report of 0.84 inches of rain in 32 minutes about three miles northwest of Arizola.

The latest round of potentially severe weather followed a day that saw numerous swift water rescues from New River to Apache Junction.

A storm that rolled through central Arizona Sunday brought heavy rain, sent water rushing through washes and flooded homes.

Fire rescue crews pulled several stranded motorists to safety after rising flood waters trapped them in their vehicles.

No injuries were reported.

The weekend brought 1 to 2 inches of rain to parts of the Valley with the official gauge at Phoenix Sky Harbor getting .95 inches.

"The moisture will continue to come out of the south but there should be less widespread thunderstorm activity on Monday and Tuesday, said CBS 5 meteorologist Katie Baker.

Slightly drier air will work its way into the area and the low pressure off the coast of Baja California will begin to move to the north, Baker said.
