FORECAST DISCUSSION

For the 56th time this year, the Old Pueblo reaches triple digit territory.

High pressure off the California coast drives afternoon temperatures a few degrees above average today. Mostly sunny skies prevail as dry air continues to shut down metro storm chances. Areas along and east of a Safford-Douglas line may see a stray shower or storm develop this afternoon.

Monsoon moisture slowly increases from the southeast by mid-week, courtesy of high pressure sliding toward the Four Corners. Isolated storms return to the forecast Wednesday, with Thursday featuring the best chance of scattered storms. Dry air filters in for Labor Day weekend. Triple digit temps and mostly sunny skies make a comeback as early as Saturday.
