TUCSON - Another Monsoon break today as temperatures rise near record levels.
Dry air from the east shuts down storm chances for most of southern Arizona, according to News 4 Meteorologist Jeff Beamish. Areas west of Metro Tucson stand a chance of isolated storms this afternoon, while the Old Pueblo sees mostly sunny skies. Today's forecast high of 107° will be the 48th triple digit day of the year & 2° shy of tying the record high temp for this date.
Monsoon moisture is pegged to increase overnight, with isolated storms back Friday. An inverted trough may trigger scattered storms Saturday afternoon. Confidence in Saturday's forecast is low as computer models are disagreeing on storm coverage & intensity.
Isolated storms round out most of next week with high temperatures remaining in triple digits.
