TUCSON - Not as gusty and dusty this afternoon.
An area of low pressure south of the New Mexico bootheel is pulling away from the state, according to News 4 Meteorologist Jeff Beamish. Moisture is also heading eastbound, meaning isolated thunderstorms stay confined east of a Safford-Douglas line today. For the rest of southern Arizona, expect mostly sunny skies with highs returning to May averages. Tucson tops out in the upper 80's this afternoon.
Everyone begins to dry out and warm up after today. High pressure sets up shop over the Baja coast, bringing May heat back to the desert. After high temps reach the mid 90's tomorrow & Saturday, Tucson will see sunny skies and near triple digit heat Mother's Day. Areas west of the metro likely break 100 Sunday & Monday.
Above average temps should hold serve through the middle of next week, with a slight cool-down to the mid 90's on tap.
