Temperatures should remain near normal across much of southeastern Arizona with maximum temperatures between 92 to 99 degrees prior to thunderstorm development during the afternoon and evening. Deeper moisture remains over southeast AZ and the storms will likely generate sufficient rain to reach the ground. Monsoon moisture across southern AZ is in place with active thunderstorm periods during the afternoon/evening hours through the week. Day to day changes in the mid/upper levels of the atmosphere will be a factor in thunderstorm duration and intensity.
