FORECAST DISCUSSION

HRRR070716

One more day with scattered storm potential.

The Old Pueblo stands a 30% chance of thunder early this afternoon. Primetime for metro storms appears to be 1-4 PM, decreasing by dinnertime. Favored areas for storm development today includes Santa Cruz and Cochise Counties. Prior to any storms, daytime highs peak in the 100s for the 26th time this year in Tucson.

High pressure repositions south of the state heading into the weekend, drawing in dry air. Isolated mountain storms are possible tomorrow, but the valley floors should be thunder-free. Ample sunshine and triple digit heat is expected to settle in this weekend and the first half of next week. High temps peak in the 103-106° range during this upcoming Monsoon lull.
