Wednesday’s Tucson Forecast: Sizzle now, storms soon?

On the 28th day of June, the Old Pueblo reaches the triple digit mark for the 28th time this year.

Today’s highs across the Old Pueblo peak in the 104-106° range. The steady diet of daytime temps in the 100s continues through the 4th of July weekend. Lots of sunshine is expected in Tucson, thanks to high pressure parked west of the state.

Some Monsoon moisture returns to the International Border Sunday and Monday, leading to slight storm chances in this area. The rest of the Sonoran Desert looks dry over the next 7 days.

Like clockwork, signs of Monsoon life may start appearing around the 4th of July. Long range models indicate high pressure shifting just east of the Four Corners. If the pattern comes to fruition, this would open up the pipeline to moisture & potentially lead to storms mid to late next week.
