TUCSON - It's another hot and dry day of weather across Southern Arizona with temperatures well above 100 degrees. The atmosphere is still relatively dry and developing storms are mainly in the White Mountains and Northern Arizona.
Moisture will dramatically increase over the next 48 hours and storms will become more numerous Wednesday, east of Tucson, and by Thursday and Friday much of Tucson could see the first beneficial soaking rain in months.
Gusty winds and the potential for blowing dust, especially in Pinal County, will be the greatest impacts. Storm chances will diminish over the weekend and into next week, but enough moisture will be around for at least isolated afternoon and evening storms.
