Dry air from the southwest shuts down storm chances for much of southern Arizona today, according to News 4 Meteorologist Jeff Beamish. Expect partly cloudy skies in Tucson with daytime highs reaching the mid 90s. Mountains, Cochise, Graham and Greenlee Counties stand a 10% chance of storms this afternoon.
High pressure near Dallas begins to track westward this weekend, opening up the pipeline to Monsoon moisture. Saturday and Sunday features a 20% chance of storms in Tucson with highs nearing 100°. Like today, higher elevations and areas east of Tucson stand the best shot at seeing storms.
