A breather, then an active Monsoon weekend

Could the Old Pueblo see its third straight night with storms?

Ample Monsoon moisture remains in place. However, after an active night of storms, the following afternoon tends to be quieter. There is a 30% chance of storms during the late afternoon & evening hours in Metro Tucson. Daytime highs peak in the 100s for the 43rd time this year.

Scattered storm chances climb this weekend, courtesy of a mid-level disturbance near El Paso. Saturday features a 50% chance of storms in Tucson, followed by a 60% chance Sunday and Monday. Primary threats includes locally heavy rainfall and gusty winds.

Daily storm chances will be dictated by previous day’s activity and how much cloud cover is present during the morning hours.
