Trending hotter...and wetter

Posted: Updated:

TUCSON - Near record heat now, but a significant pattern change awaits.

Daytime highs this afternoon and tomorrow reach the 107-110° range in Metro Tucson, according to 4WARN Meteorologist Jeff Beamish. Much of Pima County will be under an Excessive Heat Warning tomorrow from 10 AM until 8 PM. Please complete outdoor activities no later than 9 AM.

Hurricane Bud continues churning south of Baja Sur, poised to bring a wet start to Monsoon 2018. Remnant moisture from Bud arrives Friday and Saturday, coinciding with the best chance of showers and storms. Rain chances range from 50% Friday afternoon to 70% Friday night and Saturday. Drier air arrives early next week.

There remains uncertainty regarding how much rain Bud's remnants will provide. Much of this uncertainty can be attributed to Bud's exact track and how unstable the atmosphere will be. Friday afternoon may feature scattered storms, transitioning to steady showers Friday night and Saturday.

Forecast rain totals look to be in the 0.50-1.00" range. Expect ponding on the roads and some running washes.
