TUCSON - Abundant weekend moisture has been scoured out of Southern Arizona and the monsoon hose has been shut off.
For the past few weeks dew point temperatures have been in the 60-70 degree range, which has been moist enough to produce widespread storms.
According to Chief Meteorologist Matt Brode, the 'monsoon high' is a bit too close for comfort if it is storms you were hoping for.
By Wednesday high pressure will amble farther East and set-up a more favorable flow.
This Easterly flow will help transport moisture back into the region for better storm chances late in the workweek.
Meanwhile the dry air-mass has allowed the long summer days to help heat us back into triple digit territory.
Highs for much of the workweek will be a few degrees above 100.
