Monsoon storms to pick back up this week

TUCSON - Active monsoon pattern remains in place for the start of the workweek.

After yesterday's severe storm, Tucson saw a bit of a lull in the monsoon action with most of the activity remaining in Cochise County. The lack of storms in the metro made for a warm and muggy day with highs topping out near 100 degrees.

A weak upper level disturbance, currently in east-central Arizona, is forecast to move into southern Arizona over the next couple of afternoons. This disturbance will give us some added instability and better storm chances both Monday and Tuesday.

With abundant moisture in the atmosphere the greatest threat with the storms that do develop will be heavy flooding rains. Remember it only takes a few inches to float your car, never cross flooded roadways.

A slightly drier air mass moves in for the second half of the workweek and scattered storms turn more isolated. Daytime highs will remain slightly below average for the week ahead.
