TUCSON - Dry air winning the weather forecast the next few days.
High pressure tracking westward starts shutting down the Monsoon, according to News 4 Meteorologist Jeff Beamish. An isolated storm or two is possible this afternoon, however most places stay dry. Expect high temps this Wednesday in the upper 90's for Tucson.
Today's Monsoon Prediction Index sits at a 2 out of 10, with a low severe weather threat.
Southern Arizona should be storm free Thursday and Friday as high pressure reconsolidates over Nevada. The net effect for the Sonoran Desert is a return to triple digit highs, with these temps lingering into the weekend.
High pressure moves back toward Texas and Oklahoma heading into the weekend, bringing back isolated storms to the area. Widespread storm development looks unlikely over the next week.
