PHOENIX (AP) - Parts of a couple of state highways that were closed due to flooding Tuesday are open.
The Arizona Department of Transportation says State Route 74 between Interstate 17 and Lake Pleasant Parkway and the Loop 303 freeway between I-17 and Lake Pleasant Parkway reopened overnight.
Part of Interstate 17 north of Phoenix also was closed part of Tuesday but it reopened later in the day.
The National Weather Service says thunderstorm activity Wednesday in central and southwestern Arizona might produce damaging wind but probably won't cause flash flooding.
According to the forecasters, chances for storms will increase Thursday and continue Friday before declining over the weekend.
