For the 62nd time this year, Tucson reaches triple digit territory for daytime highs.
Metro Tucson reaches the 103-105° range this afternoon. East-northeast winds aloft begin to scour out remnant moisture from what was Tropical Storm Lidia. Today’s scattered storm threat shifts west of the Old Pueblo, including Ajo and Lukeville.
Triple digit heat sticks around through Thursday as high temperatures run 4-6° above average.
Long range models indicate another quick boost in moisture values late in the week. Thursday features a 20% chance of storms, increasing to 30% on Friday. Storms become more miss than hit again Saturday, followed by another dry-out early next week.
