FORECAST DISCUSSION

The Monsoon dry-out is underway.

Westerly winds aloft will scour out moisture through the afternoon. Mountaintops may squeeze out an isolated shower or storm today, but valley floors will see mostly sunny skies. Metro Tucson reaches the low 90s for highs, which is on par for late September.

High pressure begins to build over the desert southwest heading into the weekend and early next week. As a result, daytime highs climb 4-7° above average with ample sunshine. Gusty east winds up to 25 MPH are possible Friday as the high strengthens over the state. An outside shot at triple digit heat is possible Friday and Saturday.

SKY CANDY OF THE DAY

Funnel cloud or no? Mike Sparky P captured this near Houghton & Escalante yesterday. This was a severe thunderstorm showing signs of rotation. I asked the National Weather Service for some clarity. My hunch is funnel cloud.
