TUCSON - One more down day for the Monsoon before a big-time comeback.
High pressure anchored over southeastern Arizona once again limits storm chances, according to News 4 Meteorologist Jeff Beamish. Those living near the New Mexico border or International Border in Cochise County will see isolated storms today. Everywhere else, mostly sunny skies prevail this afternoon with highs eclipsing the triple digit mark in Tucson.
Monsoon moisture starts returning to southern Arizona Monday, leading to isolated thunderstorms developing. This moisture combines with a low pressure trough, bringing the most active days of the Monsoon by mid-week. Scattered thunderstorms are on tap Tuesday and the 4th of July as high temps retreat to the 90's. Storms may become severe, with damaging winds and locally heavy rainfall.
Monsoon storm chances slightly decrease by week's end, becoming more isolated over southern Arizona.
