THE CLIFF NOTES
Today – Mostly sunny. 104°, west wind 10-15 MPH.
Tonight – Clear. 77°, southeast wind 5-10 MPH.
Tomorrow – 10% chance of storms. 101°, west-southwest wind 10-15 MPH.
A prolonged lull in Monsoon storm activity settles in.
Dry air from the west shuts down storm chances for much of southern Arizona today. Highs in Tucson reach the 100s for the 24th time this year under mostly sunny skies. Areas along the International Border stand a slight storm chance, with any development decreasing after sunset.
Monsoon moisture increases modestly the rest of the work week, courtesy of high pressure nudging back toward the state. A few isolated storms are possible Wednesday through Friday for the Old Pueblo, however most of the metro stays dry. The best rain chance for mid to late week appears to favor Cochise County.
The dry westerly flow aloft sets up again this weekend. Storm chances cease for Tucson by Saturday as highs return to the 102-105° range.
