Another round of storms will develop in the same areas we’ve seen today. This will be the case on Thursday as well as warmer temperatures continue to move in. Many lower elevations and valleys will have to wait for colliding outflow boundaries to bring storm chances to these areas later in the afternoon and evening. There will be a slight uptick in storms from Thursday through.
Drier air begins moving in from the east beginning Friday. This will push the monsoon moisture out to the Arizona state line and Four Corners. This dry air will continue to push in this weekend, bringing dry air statewide as the monsoon moisture is focused over Arizona. Temperatures will hover near and slightly above average for this time of year.
