TUCSON - Mostly dry and plenty hot to start off the weekend.
High pressure anchored over southeastern Arizona is limiting the thunder threat, according to News 4 Meteorologist Jeff Beamish. Sinking air suppresses cloud build ups, with only a slight chance of isolated storms popping up near the New Mexico border this afternoon. Everywhere else, the heat is on. High temps across Tucson should top out in the 106-108 range with mostly sunny skies.
Another hot one is on tap Sunday. Highs should reach between 104-106 metro-wide.
High pressure slides to the north early next week, as a low pressure trough moves in from south Texas. This feature combined with a return of Monsoon moisture brings a chance of isolated storms Monday. Storm chances increase across southern Arizona Tuesday and the 4th of July. Expect scattered thunderstorms for the holiday with high temps in the mid to upper 90's.
