TUCSON - Just enough moisture is hanging around to keep another set of isolated storms on tap today.
As high pressure starts to build back into to the region moisture will slowly be on the rise over the next couple of days, according to Meteorologist John Patrick. Expect isolated storms today for Tucson and points east. Storm coverage becomes a little more widespread to start the work week with Monday looking like the best chance to see scattered storms. The Monsoon action is short lived, however, as the upper level high sets up right on top of Arizona. This set up generally acts as a moisture blocker for Southern Arizona limiting the opportunity to get widespread storms firing up.
Temperatures will remain near average to end the weekend putting Tucson in the mid to upper 90s. A slow warming trend into the low triple digits is expected by midweek.
