Weather for the Valley will be much quieter Tuesday, but a rogue thunderstorm is still possible for the morning and afternoon hours.

A weak disturbance tracking through the area may help trigger some rain for Metro Phoenix, but the overall picture looks drier.

A different story for the mountains of northern Arizona, as ample moisture and instability will trigger more scattered showers and storms late morning and continuing through the afternoon and evening hours. A Flash Flood Watch remains in effect for Mohave County in northwestern Arizona through this evening.

A drier and more stable air mass will track into Arizona Wednesday and Thursday from the southwest, briefly inhibiting most thunderstorm development.

Forecast models indicate high pressure will reestablish itself near the Four Corners region Friday and through the weekend, allowing a more favorable steering flow from the east and southeast to produce storms once again.

For Metro Phoenix storm chances are at 20 percent Tuesday, below 10 percent Wednesday and Thursday, then up to 20 percent Friday and Saturday, increasing to 30 percent Sunday. The high Tuesday is forecast to be a humid 101, with dew points starting off in the 70s and dropping to the mid 60s this afternoon. Expect 105 Wednesday and a less humid 107 Thursday. Humidity increases again Friday through the weekend, with highs dropping back into the low 100s.

        Another escape for the DeMartino Family from the heat and this time we head to Southern California. Basically, the spot most “zonies” head to every summer.

        People constantly tell me it never rains in THEIR neighborhood.  Truth be told, there are some parts of the Valley more favored for storms during the monsoon season.  But even Mother Nature likes to break her own rules sometimes.
