Monsoon shut-down ending soon

TUCSON - One more dry day in the Old Pueblo before storm chances make a comeback.

Winds aloft remain from the southwest this morning, according to News 4 Meteorologist Jeff Beamish. These winds continue to draw in dry air, shutting down the thunder threat for Tucson. Expect partly cloudy skies & highs in the 100's for this afternoon.

Enough moisture exists for a slight chance of isolated storms south & west of Metro Tucson today.

Winds aloft shift to the southeast as high pressure heads toward the Four Corners the next 48 hours. Monsoon moisture slowly trickles in, leading to a slight chance of isolated storms Friday into the weekend. As moisture increases, temperatures decrease slightly. Tucson should top out in the upper 90's for high temps.

The best chance of isolated storms looks to be Monday and Tuesday, when Monsoon moisture peaks across the Sonoran Desert.
