TUCSON - The temps may be cooling off, but the thunder threat is starting to simmer.
A cold front passing north of the state takes the edge of the heat today, according to News 4 Meteorologist Jeff Beamish. Under partly cloudy skies, highs top out in the mid to upper 90's for the Tucson metro. Enough moisture resides for a slight chance of isolated showers this afternoon for the mountains, but valley floors stay dry.
As for the rest of the week, all eyes are on Hurricane Miriam south of the Baja coast. There is still a great deal of uncertainty with Miriam's track. For now, its current forecast path throws enough moisture toward southern Arizona for isolated storms Friday into the new weekend.
High temps tumble into the 80's Saturday and Sunday, which is well below average.
