Monsoon Tease: Slight storm threat to wrap the work week

TUCSON - The Sonoran Desert may see a little Monsoon preview this afternoon.

Enough moisture and instability is present for a slight chance of isolated storms, according to News 4 Meteorologist Jeff Beamish. The bulk of these storms today will be in the mountains east of Tucson, but a stray storm can't be ruled out as far west as the metro. Storms should flare up after lunch time, fizzling out by sunset.

Gusty winds up to 25 MPH are possible today, especially near areas seeing storms. Tucson this afternoon reaches the 100's for the 20th time this year.

Dry air moves in by the weekend, but the breezes remain elevated. Fire Weather Watches are out Saturday for areas east of Tucson, as gusty winds and low relative humidity create a high fire danger. Highs remain in the 100's for Father's Day weekend and much of next week.
