TUCSON - Less storm coverage expected this afternoon but we may break our triple digit stretch.
After one of our most active days of the monsoon so far storm coverage is expected to become more isolated today. We were able to squeeze out 0.89" at TIA during Friday's storms, however, after an active day our atmosphere likes to take a day off. Meteorologist John Patrick is expecting a few isolated storms to hug the mountains with a low threat for any of those storms to turn severe.
With the added moisture from yesterday's storms we may finally be able to snap our historic triple digit streak. It has been 35 straight days above 100 which is good for the fourth longest stretch ever in Tucson. However, a high of 99 this afternoon may keep us from the all time stretch of 39 straight days set back in 2005 and 1987.
Watching for an upswing in monsoon activity by the middle of next week so until than expect isolated storms across Southern Arizona. Check out your True View 4 extended forecast by clicking here.
