Isolated storms return!

Posted: Updated:

TUCSON - It's not much, but a few thunderstorms may develop over the next few days.

High pressure east of the state is allowing some Monsoon moisture to enter the state, according to 4WARN Meteorologist Jeff Beamish. There is a 20% chance of storms today for Cochise County, while the rest of southern Arizona stays dry. In Tucson, expect highs to reach the 103-105° range under mostly sunny skies.

A stray storm or two can't be ruled out for the Old Pueblo tomorrow and Saturday. Favored areas for storm development through Saturday should be in the mountains and east of the metro area.

While storms will be more miss than hit, they will be capable of gusty winds and patchy blowing dust.

Long range models indicate a drying trend as the 4th of July approaches. The early call for the holiday features mostly sunny skies, triple digit heat and thunder-free conditions.
