TUCSON - Monsoon 2012 takes a few days off across southern Arizona.
High pressure near Las Vegas is drawing in drier air, according to News 4 Meteorologist Jeff Beamish. This, along with warmer air aloft, leads to only a slight chance of an isolated storm for Tucson this afternoon. The best chance of isolated storms today should be in Cochise, Graham and Greenlee Counties.
Today's Monsoon Prediction Index is at 2, meaning a low risk of severe weather.
With storm chances decreasing the thermometer increases. High temps today and tomorrow top out in the 100's, as isolated storms stay confined to the mountains Thursday.
Monsoon moisture returns to southern Arizona by Friday as high pressure settles over Oklahoma. Look for a daily round of thunderstorms to return by then, with Saturday perhaps being the most active day of the next 7.
