.DISCUSSION...
Daily shower and thunderstorm chances will remain in place across
the area through the middle of the week. There may be a slight
reduction in storm chances later this week as drier air moves into
central Arizona, but this will be short lived with storms once
again becoming more widespread by the weekend. With such elevated
moisture in place across the region, fire weather concerns are
minimal. Outside of thunderstorm induced gusts, expect typical
diurnal patterns.
