TUCSON - Isolated showers and storms moved through Southern Arizona today but relatively quiet compared to the weekend.
We were able to pick up a quick 0.04" at the airport this afternoon making it the fifth straight day with rain in the bucket, according to Meteorologist John Patrick. Today's rain brings the Monsoon total to 3.22" all in a matter of a month. The rainfall deficit for 2012 has been cut down to -0.26" after receiving the 1.83" over the weekend. Moisture is, however, thinning out and pushing east so rain chances are on the decline for this week but after the past couple of days a little break for clean up may be needed.
Isolated storms are expected for Tuesday keeping Tucson in the slight chance range to get a stray storm rolling through. By Wednesday the Monsoon moisture plume shifts into New Mexico for their turn at the stormy weather leaving most of Southern Arizona dry.
As usual when we dry out the temperatures shoot up. Triple digits make their way back into your forecast by the middle of the week but luckily they don't last long. Moisture returns this upcoming weekend bringing scattered storms back to the region and daytime highs back in the 90s.
