Tomorrow – Sunny, hot. 104°, west wind 10-15 MPH.

FORECAST DISCUSSION

Last call for slight storm chances in Southern Arizona.

While the Old Pueblo braces for the 11th triple digit day of the year, isolated storms fire up along & east of a Safford-Sierra Vista line. Rain chances in these areas are a mere 10%. Storm coverage will be much less versus Wednesday.

Highs in Tucson this afternoon peak in the 103-105° range under mostly sunny skies.

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. Summer swelter returns the middle of next week.
