TUCSON - Monsoon 2014 is working slow but steady to make a comeback.
Showers and storms have once again favored areas south of Tucson near the international border to start the weekend. Weak upper level winds aren't helping push storms far from where they form, so localized flooding and gusty winds to 40mph are possible with the storms that do form today.
High pressure is slowly moving toward the four corners region in the coming days for a gradual increase in moisture and storm chances. Isolated storms are possible once again Sunday and may creep a little further north from the border.
It looks like the moisture content peaks on Tuesday and Wednesday for our best chance of afternoon storms. Isolated to scattered storms will be possible through this time period with heavy soakers and gusty winds the main threat.
A Pacific low is forecast to move through late next week possibly scouring our monsoon moisture to the east for a few days. Expect another downturn in monsoon activity by Friday of next week.
