TUCSON -After a very active past few days in the weather department the Monsoon is taking a couple days off.
After Tucson International received a July record of three straight days with a half inch or more of rain the storm activity is starting to shifting east, according to Meteorologist John Patrick. Our Monsoon moisture plume shifts into New Mexico for the middle of the week taking our storms chances with it. However, the Monsoon break is short lived as we watch an upper level disturbance track toward Arizona bringing back our scattered storm chances this weekend.
The below average temperatures that have been around for the past five days will soon be coming to end as well. As we dry out the temperatures shoot up and the triple digits return to some locations as soon as tomorrow. Daytime highs will drop back into the 90s as moisture increases this weekend.
