TUCSON - Dry air settling in will limit our storm chances and increase our daytime highs.
According to Meteorologist John Patrick, a dry westerly flow is taking over the region shutting down the monsoon over the next couple of days. With less moisture in the air temperatures will rise back into the triple digits at least through midweek.
We're now about a month and a half into the monsoon and it's typical to a lull in the storm activity and some areas can really use the break. Most major cities in Southern Arizona are above average with their official monsoon totals:
Sierra Vista: 3.74"(+0.87")
Expect a more typical monsoon pattern with a daily round of isolated to scattered storms to return by the second half of this week.
