And now, a brief Monsoon timeout.
Drier air works into Southern Arizona. This leads to a downturn in thunderstorm development over the next two days. Metro Tucson stands a mere 10% chance of storms, while areas east of the Old Pueblo have a 20% chance of thunder. These hit & miss storms will be mainly confined to the afternoon and early evening hours.
As the atmosphere dries out, temperatures heat up. After only reaching the upper 80s Monday, highs approach triple digit territory this afternoon through Thursday.
So far, Tucson has reached the triple digit mark 44 times in 2017.
Monsoon moisture funnels into the state by late week, returning scattered storm chances as soon as Thursday. Some computer models hint at Sunday to be the most active Monsoon day out of the next 7.
