TUCSON - The Monsoon break may be coming to an end soon, perhaps sparing the Sonoran Desert from record-breaking heat.
High pressure over New Mexico supplies a long stretch of 100° days, according to News 4 Meteorologist Jeff Beamish. Tucson reaches 105° this afternoon, with near record highs in the 108-109° tomorrow and Thursday. High temps the next few days run as much as 10° above average.
Isolated storms are possible along the International Border & New Mexico state line this afternoon. Tomorrow features a better chance of isolated storms for Tucson, as a mid-level disturbance moves in from the east. Storm chances ramp up to the scattered variety Saturday afternoon/evening as another potential disturbance increases the thunder threat.
