Monsoon 2013

Calmer today, Monsoon 2013 ramps up rest of week

TUCSON - Monsoon 2013 takes a brief timeout today.

Drier air limits storm chances to the isolated variety, according to News 4 Meteorologist Jeff Beamish. Enough moisture lingers to spark a few storms, most of which will be west of Metro Tucson. A repeat performance of yesterday seems unlikely.

Of note, today's forecast high of 101° is the 63rd triple digit day of 2013. That puts the Old Pueblo above average for number of 100° days (average number is 62 days/year).

Moisture surges up the Gulf of California tomorrow, as a mid-level disturbance shoots up from southwest Mexico. Scattered storms are likely Wednesday through Saturday, with Thursday potentially being the most active day.

A few storms can't be ruled out for the Labor Day weekend with daytime highs approaching the upper 90's.
