TUCSON - A tropical influence may lead to a few showers for the holiday weekend.
Tropical Storm Lidia is expected to track up the Baja peninsula over the next 36 hours, according to 4WARN Meteorologist Jeff Beamish. This puts Southern Arizona in play for a weak surge of Gulf moisture.
As a result, there is a 20% chance of showers on Saturday. The best chance of scattered showers & storms should be in Western Pima County & Santa Cruz County. Rainfall amounts from Lidia's tropical moisture should be rather light & no flooding issues are expected.
Cloud cover likely keeps high temps below triple digit territory Saturday. A stray storm can't be ruled out the remainder of the Labor Day weekend. The upcoming work week features a better chance of isolated storms on Tuesday.
