TUCSON - A much more active period of weather is developing across SE Arizona over the next few days. After months of dry and hot weather, the region is expected to finally receive some beneficial rain.
High pressure is moving into the Four Corners which is an ideal position to tap into abundant moisture to our south.
Storms for the rest of Wednesday should remain mainly east of Tucson and in the White Mountains. There is a chance that some of these storms could produce outflow winds, or winds that help generate new storms. We'll have to watch out for a few developing later tonight. Otherwise skies will remain clear and lows reach the upper 70s.
Thursday and Friday look to be the days best primed for widespread thunderstorms. The biggest threat will be damaging winds and blowing dust, especially in Pinal County.
Monsoon 2014 is finally here so make sure to stay with News 4 Tucson on-air, online and on social media for all of your weather alerts.
