Morning sprinkles, afternoon showers south of Tucson

TUCSON - Lots of clouds, but little rain.

According to News 4 Meteorologist Jeff Beamish, an area of low pressure cruising down the Baja coast has developed showers in southern Arizona this morning. However, dry air residing across the desert floors is evaporating most of what's falling from the clouds. Expect only a few sprinkles across the Tucson metro this morning, with light rain areas south and west.

Later on this afternoon, isolated showers will be possible over the International Border. The rest of southern Arizona should see mostly cloudy skies, with highs at or near 70 in the Old Pueblo.

Thursday features another weather-maker clipping the eastern portion of the state. Once again, rain chances look minimal, with a stray shower or two possible near the New Mexico border.

The weekend looks drier, sunnier and warmer, with low to mid 70's. Models are hinting at some unsettled weather next week, with another chance of isolated showers coming Tuesday.
