Increasing thunder threat to wrap week

Posted: Updated:

TUCSON - Scattered storms are set to return in 24 hours.

Highs reach triple digit territory for the 64th time this year, according to 4WARN Meteorologist Jeff Beamish. Metro Tucson peaks in the 100-102° range this afternoon. There is a slight chance of isolated storms late day/evening storms. Favored areas for scattered storms today will be in Central and Western Pima County, including the towns of Ajo and Lukeville.

A better chance of scattered storms is expected area-wide Friday. Rain chances for the metro sit at 40% to wrap the work week. Primary concerns with storm development include gusty winds and blowing dust. Highs peak in the mid 90s.

Drier air wins the battle of the Monsoon this weekend into next week. While an isolated storm can't be ruled out Saturday, most places stay thunder free as highs trend back toward the 100s.
