Date & Time:  8/22/2014 1:23 PM MST
Forecaster:  Waters, S.


Today: Yesterday numerous thunderstorms formed throughout central AZ with some lightning and occasional high winds, but not much in the way of rainfall – we had 13 stations report ½  inch to 1 inch.  Today as that pesky low moves on out to the plains we have relatively dry air taking its place.  Relatively cool as well, with highs today from around 90 in Aguila and Carefree to the mid-90s in the big city.

Tomorrow & Sunday: Rain chances are pretty much none as we head through a sunny weekend.  Temperatures Saturday will be a degree or two warmer than today.  Add two to three degrees on Sunday.  Monday monsoon moisture returns to the highland areas to our north and east, and on Tuesday we ramp up chances here in the Valley.
