THE CLIFF NOTES
Today – 10% chance of storms. 103°, northeast wind 5-15 MPH.
Tonight – Mostly clear. 78°, southeast wind 10 MPH.
Tomorrow – Mostly sunny. 102°, northeast wind 5-15 MPH.
Slight storm chances return this afternoon.
Metro Tucson stands a 10% chance of storms between 3-7 PM. Favored areas for isolated storm development today include Pinal, Graham and Greenlee Counties. While most of eastern Pima County stays dry, daytime highs reach triple digit territory for the 53rd time this year.
Dry air wins again tomorrow, as isolated mountain storms are expected. A stalled storm system off southern California pulls in better Monsoon moisture later in the week. This returns a daily chance of isolated storms to the Old Pueblo Thursday into early next week.
As moisture increases, daytime highs drop to the upper 90s heading into the weekend.
SKY CANDY OF THE DAY
Rays from the Rincons, captured Monday evening by Jack Challem. These are called anticrepuscular rays. Parallel shafts of sunlight stretch across the sky as the sun sets, with the dark shadows caused be either clouds or mountains.
These rays also appear in the western sky at sunset, known as crepuscular rays.
