TUCSON - Southern Arizona holds on to another chance of scattered storms to finish up the weekend.
High dewpoints in the 60s show that moisture is holding strong at most locations in Southern Arizona and scattered storms are likely to take off late this afternoon. Thunderstorm activity is expected to initiate in the higher elevations of Cochise, Graham and Santa Cruz Counties and push west into Pima and Pinal throughout the evening. The biggest threats with todays storms will be damaging wind gusts and heavy rainfall leading to flooding issues.
Thunderstorms become a bit more spotty in coverage as we start the work week but a stray storm or two can still make it into the Tucson metro. Monsoon activity start to pick back up once again for the middle of the work week as a weather disturbance passes to our north. Daytime highs will remain near average in the mid 90s for the next several days.
