TUCSON - Usually the day after big storms sees a downturn in the thunder threat. That may not be the case later on this afternoon.
Monsoon moisture interacts with a mid-level disturbance to develop scattered storms today, according to News 4 Meteorologist Jeff Beamish. Storms should pop up in the mountains around lunchtime, drifting into the lower elevations by late afternoon/early evening. Activity should decrease by midnight.
Storms today will be capable of locally heavy rain, damaging microburst winds & blowing dust.
Another round of scattered storms is possible tomorrow as a cold front clips New Mexico. High pressure drops over central Arizona mid to late week, suppressing the thunder threat. Valley floors look dry Thursday through Saturday with highs returning to the 100's.
