TUCSON - The Old Pueblo wakes up to some early morning showers and thunderstorms.
Tucson International Airport picked up a quick 0.04" this morning while your backyard could've seen 0.25"-0.50" as showers and storms pushed north through Tucson, according to Meteorologist John Patrick. Things are set up to see an active afternoon with scattered storms expected across southern Arizona to start the work week. Main storm threats today will be periods of heavy rain possibly leading to flooding issues and gusty winds. As we watch an upper level disturbance move through Arizona over the next 48 hours expect those scattered storms to stick around through Tuesday.
By mid week we start to transport drier air into the region turning our storm chances from scattered to isolated by Wednesday. The drying trend continues and we take our storm chances out altogether by Friday into the weekend.
Thanks to our storm coverage over the next few days our highs are forecast to stay below average in the upper 80s to low 90s. Enjoy it while it last because as we dry out the temperatures shoot back up. By the weekend highs are expected to be back to normal in the mid to upper 90s.
