Tuesday’s Tucson Forecast: Swelter now, storms returning soon?

For the 47th time this year, the Old Pueblo heads for triple digit territory.

High pressure over Southeastern Arizona cranks temperatures into the 102-104° range in Metro Tucson, according to 4WARN Meteorologist Jeff Beamish. Mostly sunny skies prevail across much of the area today, while partly cloud skies are possible along the International Border. Nighttime lows bottom out in the mid 70s.

Monsoon moisture begins its slow trek northward tomorrow, returning storm chances to Metro Tucson. There is a 20% chance of storms Wednesday and Thursday with highs around 102-105°. Scattered storms are possible Friday through early next week.

At the moment, the most active storm days out of the next 7 appear to be Saturday and Sunday. Each day features a 40% chance of storms with highs in the mid to upper 90s.
