SYNOPSIS FROM THE PHOENIX OFFICE
A warm, dry and stable airmass will remain across much the Desert Southwest this week giving the region a significant break in the monsoon. Afternoon temperatures over the lower deserts will remain near or a few degrees above normal. The return of monsoon moisture will gradually bring chances for thunderstorms again starting by late in the weekend or early next week
Model agreement is quite high this dry pattern will finally come to an end starting Sunday, but more likely early next week. The subtropical high will shift northward starting Saturday finally becoming centered over northern New Mexico on Sunday. This high position is much more favorable for monsoonal flow into Arizona as winds shift to a more southeasterly direction. It is difficult to know at this point when the first good chance of monsoon thunderstorms will be as it could happen as early as Sunday or wait until next Monday or Tuesday. For now we will keep the slight chance PoPs over high terrain areas on Sunday and introduce some slight chance PoPs over the south-central Arizona deserts starting next Monday. Once the moisture does return our daytime highs will decrease a few degrees and end up right around seasonal normal
