Tonight – Partly cloudy late. 76°, southeast wind 5-10 MPH.
Tomorrow – 20% chance of storms. 101°, southwest wind 5-10 MPH.
After today, the Monsoon starts to take a breather.
Enough moisture & instability is present to support scattered storms this afternoon. Rain chances range from 40% in Tucson to 50% south & east of the metro area. Primetime for storms in the Old Pueblo appears to be 1-7 PM. Daytime highs peak in the upper 90s.
Drier air takes over heading into the weekend and early next week. This decreases storms to the isolated variety & increases afternoon highs to the 100s.
Long range models indicate the potential for subtropical moisture entering the state mid to late next week. As a result, scattered storms could return to the forecast by Thursday. Exact rainfall amounts remain unclear this far out.
