TUCSON - Southern Arizona storms chances are on the decline while temps rise.
For Saturday afternoon we'll hang on to just enough moisture to support isolated storms mainly south and east of Tucson. According to Meteorologist John Patrick, as an area of high pressure shifts overhead our storm coverage will become minimal over the next few days.
While dry air nudges into the region temperatures will once again climb back into the triple digits. We could begin another 100 degree stretch starting this afternoon through the middle of next week. The last time Tucson hit 100 was July 15.
We'll watch for an uptick in storm activity by the second half of next week. Stay with News 4 Tucson on-air and on-line for further Monsoon Storm Alert updates. Track the storms with our Interactive Radar & get severe weather alerts on your phone by texting "MONSOON" to 95990.
