TUCSON - Autumn officially arrives at 7:29 PM today, but we're still in "Monsoon Mode". Southwesterly winds aloft are scouring out moisture, according to News 4 Meteorologist Jeff Beamish. This leads to a slight chance of isolated storms in Tucson this afternoon. Areas east of the metro stand a better chance at scattered storms, where moisture levels are much higher. Expect a few lingering storms during the overnight hours, but most will stay dry. High pressure parks over the Colorado River valley tomorrow, shifting storm chances to the mountains. Mostly sunny skies prevail through Thursday with highs in the mid to upper 90's. Forecast models hint at storm chances increasing by the weekend, in response to a Pacific storm system. There is some disagreement as to how widespread coverage will be, so isolated hit & miss storms will be the call Friday into Sunday.
