Monday’s Tucson Forecast: Monsoon pattern finally takes shape

Like clockwork, the first week of July features storm chances.

Monsoon moisture settles into the southern portion of the state. Metro Tucson stands a 20% chance of storms the next few days, mainly between 2-7 PM. While rain chances are slight, any storm that pops up could produce gusty winds and blowing dust.

Daytime highs through the 4th of July peak around 102-104° in the Old Pueblo. Areas along the International Border stand the best chance of scattered storms this afternoon and tomorrow.

High pressure sets up shop over the Four Corners mid to late week. This keeps in a slight storm chance for much of Southern Arizona through Thursday. Models indicate the potential of a brief break from storms Friday and Saturday as highs surge above 105°.
