From Meteorologist Eric Gardner:
High Today: 86
Winds: SE 5-10 mph

We will see mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies today with seasonably warm temperatures.

Low Tonight: 64
High Tuesday: 81
Wind: SE 5-15 mph

Monsoon moisture streaming in from the southwest will combine with a stationary front to produce fairly widespread showers and thunderstorms Tuesday through Thursday this week. Locally heavy rainfall will be possible, and any of the thunderstorms may contain frequent lightning and perhaps small hail.

After a brief break in the storms Friday, additional scattered storms are likely as we close Rally Week on Sunday.
