Busy Monsoon weekend

TUCSON - The weekend starts with a chance of scattered showers and thunderstorms.

With plenty of moisture hanging around after yesterday's storms it looks like another busy Monsoon day, according to Meteorologist John Patrick. As high pressure provides the moisture and a weak disturbance adds to the uplift and instability in the atmosphere storms should have little trouble firing up this afternoon. As with any thunderstorm strong wind gusts, heavy rain, lightning and hail could all be possible.

Enough moisture hangs around into the start of your work week to keep the scattered storms around. Eventually the moisture plume will head east and the best storm chances will settle over New Mexico with only isolated storms for Arizona by Wednesday.

For the next several days high temperatures will be below average in the upper 90s. As moisture and storm chances decrease by the middle of next week the temperatures shoot back up in the triple digits.
