Isolated storms followed by mid May warmth

TUCSON - Southern Arizona holding onto isolated storm chances into the start of the weekend.

A lingering low pressure hanging over the Four Corners region brought about another below average day topping 84 in the Old Pueblo. According to Meteorologist John Patrick, that same low will tap into enough moisture to bring some isolated storms both Friday and Saturday.

Best chance for storms looks like the afternoon hours ranging from an Oracle-Tucson-Nogales line and points east. Rainfall will remain light with valley locations likely seeing less than 0.10" and mountain areas up to 0.25".

Warmer temps and dry air prevail as we head into Mother's Day Sunday with highs in the low 90s under mostly sunny skies. High pressure moves over Arizona to build daytime highs into the upper 90s by the middle of next week.
