TUCSON - An increasing thunder threat over the next few days.
High pressure over the Rockies will draw an inverted trough in from Texas, according to News 4 Meteorologist Jeff Beamish. This feature touches off isolated thunderstorms this afternoon, mainly east of Tucson. Enough moisture is in place where a stray storm or two may make it into the metro. For the 4th day in a row, high temps will stay under 100 degrees in Tucson.
The 100's and a better chance of thunder headlines the weekend. Scattered storms develop Saturday and Sunday afternoon. Some storms could produce gusty winds and locally heavy rainfall. Most places should see anywhere between 0.10-0.25" rain over the weekend.
High pressure slides back to the Four Corners by Monday, keeping in a daily round of storms. Wednesday and Thursday appear to be the most active days for the Monsoon next week.
