Labor Day monsoon outlook

TUCSON - Monsoon's Labor Day vacation continues for now.

Sunday's storms remained mainly mountain huggers with little moisture to work with across the region. According to Meteorologist John Patrick, modest moisture returns for your Labor Day holiday bringing slightly better storm chances to Southern Arizona.

Thunderstorms should remain isolated Monday afternoon, however, the storms that do develop will have a better chance to make it to the valley floors. Locally heavy rain and gusty winds will be the main concern tomorrow.

A low grade monsoon pattern sets up through the upcoming week with hit or miss storms possible each afternoon. Daytime highs will be about 3-5 degrees above average for early September as they hover in the low triple digits.
