TUCSON - A few storms today could be the monsoon's last effort for now.
The weekend kicked off with a few quick downpours moving through some parts of the Old Pueblo. Tucson's far south side from Valencia Rd. to Sahuarita picked up the most rainfall where radar estimates came in just over an inch. Besides a stray shower or two the rest of your Saturday looks dry.
We're starting to bring in drier air from the west as we head into the new week meaning storm chances will start dwindle. For Sunday isolated storms will still be possible south and east of the Tucson metro with biggest threat still being heavy rain.
By Monday and Tuesday the dry southwesterly flow really starts to settle in shutting down the monsoon for this period. Daytime highs will also jump back up into the triple digits through the first half of the upcoming week.
We'll watch for an uptick in storm activity by the second half of next week. Stay with News 4 Tucson on-air and on-line for further Monsoon Storm Alert updates. Track the storms with our Interactive Radar & get severe weather alerts on your phone by texting "MONSOON" to 95990.
