FORECAST DISCUSSION

A sizzling end to the work week, but the umbrellas may be needed this weekend.

Metro Tucson reaches the 106-108° range this afternoon. This marks the 35th time Tucson has reached 100°+ in 2016. Isolated border storms are possible today, with rain chances sitting at a mere 10% for Nogales, Sierra Vista and Douglas.

High pressure shifts toward New Mexico this weekend, opening up the pipeline to Monsoon moisture. Scattered border storms develop tomorrow, while Tucson sees partly cloudy skies. By Sunday, rain chances jump to 40% for the Old Pueblo. Storms could be capable of producing a dust storm on I-10 between Marana and Phoenix Sunday.

Early next week sees a typical Monsoon pattern. Scattered storm chances continue through Wednesday, decreasing to the isolated variety late next week. Highs remain in triple digit territory for Tucson, however temperatures won’t be as hot as what we’ve seen the last few days.
