TUCSON - For the second consecutive week, the Monsoon takes a few days off.
Dry Pacific air infiltrates the Sonoran Desert, according to 4WARN Meteorologist Jeff Beamish. While a stray storm can't be ruled out today near the Arizona/New Mexico border, mostly sunny skies prevail. Metro Tucson peaks in the upper 90s & 100s this afternoon through the first half of the weekend.
Monsoon moisture remains shunted from the Grand Canyon State this weekend. By early next week, long range computer models hint at an uptick in moisture. Isolated storms return to the forecast Sunday, followed by a better chance of scattered storms Monday.
It remains unclear how much cloud cover will be present late Monday morning, when the partial solar eclipse peaks in Arizona.
