High pressure directly over southeastern Arizona suppresses development today. A 10% chance of isolated storms is possible for Metro Tucson, increasing to 20% south and east of the Old Pueblo. For the 60th time in 2015, Tucson reaches triple digits for daytime highs. Expect partly cloudy skies this evening.
Isolated storm chances continue tomorrow, with most of southern Arizona staying dry.
Scattered storms may return Sunday and Monday as an influx of moisture moves in from the south. Daytime highs drop below the century mark as storm chances increase. Long range models hint at the thunder threat decreasing the middle of next week, with the potential for dry conditions for the Wildcats football season opener.
