Today features what could be the last chance of storms for a while.

Dry air pushing in from the southwest continues to decrease the thunder threat. Metro Tucson & points east stand a 10% chance of storms from lunchtime through the early evening. Highs reach the low to mid 90s across Tucson, running a few degrees below average for mid September.

Today’s Monsoon Prediction Index is 1 out of 10 for Tucson, indicating a low storm risk.

Thunder free conditions prevail for Tucson tomorrow, as isolated storm chances shift into Cochise, Graham and Greenlee Counties. Mostly sunny skies are on tap heading into the weekend as high temps peak in the mid to upper 90s. Barring development in the eastern Pacific, early next week looks dry as well as a series of storm systems pass north of the state.
