Because of the morning cloud deck, widespread storm development appears unlikely today. Tucson stands a 20% chance of storms from lunchtime through the evening hours. Areas south and east of Tucson have a 30% chance of storms today. While a few storms may produce locally heavy rainfall, the severe weather threat is low.
Today’s Monsoon Prediction Index is 2 out of 10 for Tucson, indicating a low storm risk.
Tomorrow may feature a better chance of scattered storms, depending on how much cloud cover we start the day with. Rain chances slip from 30% Thursday to 10% on Friday with highs in the low to mid 90s.
The weekend still looks dry for the valley floors, while the mountains could see a few isolated storms. An isolated storm or two may dot the lower elevations early next week.
