TUCSON - Metro storms may be spotty in nature, but could produce torrential rain.
A moist, energized atmosphere fires up isolated storms in Tucson through the evening hours, according to News 4 Meteorologist Jeff Beamish. The best chance for scattered storms will be south of the metro along the International Border. Any storm that develops will be capable of 0.50-1.00" rain, which may swell streams and washes.
Storm chances decrease late this evening across southern Arizona.
Expect isolated storms through the weekend in Tucson as highs flirt with the triple digit mark. Models hint at an upswing in storm development Tuesday and Wednesday of next week. Scattered storms may develop as a mid-level disturbance moves in from Mexico.
