THE CLIFF NOTES
Today – 30% chance of storms. 103°, west-northwest wind 10 MPH.
Tonight – 10% chance of storms. 81°, south-southeast wind 5 MPH.
Tomorrow – 30% chance of storms. 103°, northwest wind 10-15 MPH.
Storm chances not great this afternoon, but not zero either.
The atmosphere lacks a trigger to boost storm development despite ample moisture. Tucson stands a 30% chance of storms today, with the primetime coming between 2-7 PM. Areas along the border and the mountains look to be the favored areas for scattered storms this afternoon. For the 44th time this year, the Old Pueblo hits triple digit territory.
An isolated storm or two can’t be ruled out during the overnight hours.
Rain chances tomorrow reside at 30%, dropping to 20% Thursday as slightly drier air moves in. Models indicate an uptick in moisture heading into the weekend, restoring a chance of scattered storms for much of southern Arizona.
