TUCSON - Storm chances shift eastward today.
A Pacific trough over central Arizona triggers another round of thunderstorms this afternoon, according to News 4 Meteorologist Jeff Beamish. Areas east of Tucson will see scattered storms today, with isolated hit & miss storms possible in the Tucson metro. Expect storm chances to decrease after sunset this evening.
There's still a flash flood risk, especially east of Tucson. This puts today's Monsoon Prediction Index at 4 out of 10 for the moderate risk of flooding.
Drier air filters in from the west over the next few days, leaving a slight chance of isolated storms tomorrow for Tucson & points west. An umbrella-free weekend is in the cards as Tucson tops out in the mid 90's under mostly sunny skies.
High pressure over the Rockies next week returns isolated storms to the valley floors and triple digit heat.
