FORECAST DISCUSSION

This afternoon could be the swan song for Monsoon storm chances.

Metro Tucson stands a 30% chance of storms between 2-6 PM, according to 4WARN Meteorologist Jeff Beamish. Thunderstorms will be more miss than hit east of the Old Pueblo this afternoon, as dry air begins to work in from the southwest. Overall, coverage for storms will be less than yesterday.

Daytime highs peak in the mid 90s, followed by nighttime lows in the upper 60s.

A low pressure trough pushes through the state over the next 48 hours, scouring out remaining Monsoon moisture. Mostly sunny skies prevail for the valley floors heading into the weekend. Afternoon temperatures range from the mid 90s Wednesday to the low 90s early next week.
