Slim storm chance for your Labor Day plans.

Enough moisture is present to pop isolated storms during the late afternoon & evening hours. Tucson stands a 10% chance of storms with daytime highs reaching the upper 90s. Activity that develops today likely favors the International Border and mountains. A stray storm can’t be ruled out overnight.

Isolated storms remains the call tomorrow with high pressure slowly tracking toward the state. Hurricane Linda in the eastern Pacific may trigger a surge of moisture up the Gulf of California the middle of the week, increasing storm chances. A 30% chance of scattered storms is possible Wednesday and Thursday. Depending on Linda’s track, rain chances may need to be increased.

A drying trend commences for the upcoming weekend. Mostly sunny skies prevail for the valley floors, as daytime highs return to triple digits. Isolated mountain storms can’t be ruled out Saturday and Sunday.
