Tomorrow – 10% chance of storms. 104°, west-northwest wind 10-15 MPH.

FORECAST DISCUSSION

While it’s not a great chance, there is the potential for a few metro storms today.

Southerly winds aloft allow moisture to trickle into the state. Rain chances range from 20% in Metro Tucson to 40% across Cochise, Graham and Greenlee Counties. Primetime for storms looks to be around 3-8 PM.

Daytime highs still reach the 100s in Tucson today, but Excessive Heat Warnings have been canceled for the metro area.

The slight thunder threat continues tomorrow. Tucson stands a 10% chance of storms Thursday. Like today, the better odds for rain reside east of the Old Pueblo. Highs tomorrow through the weekend peak in the 100-104° range.

A storm system passing north of the state snuffs out the triple digit streak next week. Gusty winds develop Saturday, followed by highs in the mid to upper 90s to start the upcoming work week. These temperatures run a few degrees below mid June standards.
