TUCSON - Another run at the record books this afternoon.
Dry air from New Mexico is moving into the state, according to News 4 Meteorologist Jeff Beamish. The result from this is a slight chance of isolated storms in Tucson & near-record high temps. Today's forecast high of 107 is just 2 degrees shy of the record high set on this date in 1915.
Areas west of a Three Points-Sasabe line stand the best chance of thunderstorms today. Our exclusive Monsoon Prediction Index sits at a 2 out of 10 this afternoon, meaning a low risk for severe weather.
Storm chances remain slim through Saturday, as high pressure stays locked near the Four Corners. Highs this weekend should peak in the 106-108 range, which is 9-11 degrees above average.
Monsoon moisture slowly returns next week with isolated thunderstorms possible starting Sunday. The best chance for storms over the next 7 days looks to be Wednesday.
