Daytime highs along with humidity levels dropped a bit this afternoon but it'll be a quick turnaround for the return of monsoonal flow.

A surge of moisture from our east moves westward overnight, increasing humidity levels and giving our mountains a shot for scattered thunderstorms tomorrow afternoon.

The NWS issued a Flood Watch beginning Thursday for our mountains expiring in the evening. Thunderstorms could produce downpours at times leading to localized flooding. Instability will also up the chances for periods of gusty winds and hail.

Monsoon storm activity quiets down Friday through Saturday but another round of monsoon moisture, more widespread, arrives Sunday. This activity looks to give our beaches and valleys a chance for pop-up showers.

Although daytime highs will continue trending near or a few degrees below normal, high humidity levels dominating the remainder of week will result in tropical-like, muggy conditions.

As we track the monsoon stay with the Pinpoint Weather Team for updates on how far west the surge will move each day.

Thursday's Highs:
Coast: 76-81°
Inland: 83-94°
Mountains: 87-96°
Deserts: 105-108°
