Monday's Tucson Forecast: Saguaro soaker potential this week

Posted: Updated:

TUCSON - After a mostly quiet weekend, Monsoon 2016 gets a boost from the eastern Pacific.

This afternoon features a 20% chance of storms for Metro Tucson, according to 4WARN Meteorologist Jeff Beamish. Areas south and east of Tucson stand the best chance of scattered storms today. Highs reach the 102-104° range, followed by nighttime lows in the upper 70s.

An uptick in rain chances enters the forecast starting tomorrow. Tropical Storm Javier moves up the southern half of Baja California, triggering a surge of moisture up the Gulf of California. This moisture surge could lead to heavy rainfall across portions of southern Arizona tomorrow afternoon through late Wednesday. Metro Tucson stands a 70% chance of storms in this timeframe, decreasing to 40% on Thursday.

Rainfall amounts are expected to be in the 0.50-1.50" range between Tuesday and early Thursday. A few places could see isolated higher amounts in excess of 2". It remains unclear where the heaviest rainfall will occur.

Drier air returns by the upcoming weekend, leading to a slight storm chance and highs nearing triple digits.
