FORECAST DISCUSSION

For the 17th time this year, the Old Pueblo heads to triple digit territory.

Highs reach the 104-108° range this afternoon. Partly cloudy skies prevail for Metro Tucson, with mountains and areas along the border standing a slight storm chance today. Overnight lows drop to the upper 70s, which is well above normal for mid June.

The International Border and mountaintops should continue to see a daily round of isolated storms through Saturday. Dry and hot conditions are expected for Tucson heading into the weekend.

Models indicate a slow moisture increase by early next week as high pressure parks near Las Vegas. As a result, much of southern Arizona stands a slight thunder threat. Tucson rain chances sit at 10% Sunday through Tuesday, with daytime highs peaking around 103-105°.
