Sizzling now, storms soon?

Posted: Updated:

TUCSON - Scorching today, but some relief may be in sight.

High pressure anchored near Albuquerque drives temperatures 4-6° above average today, according to 4WARN Meteorologist Jeff Beamish. This afternoon features the hottest temps of the next 7 days. Metro Tucson peaks in the 106-108° range, marking the 27th triple digit day of the year.

Temperatures trend down to wrap the week as Monsoon moisture starts to advance toward the state. While it's not a great amount of moisture, it should be enough to ignite isolated storms. Tucson's rain chances range from 10% Friday to 20% on Saturday.

Mountains and areas south & east of Metro Tucson appear to be the favored areas for storm development. A few storms may produce gusty winds and blowing dust.

Highs this upcoming weekend drop to the upper 90s. Triple digit heat is slated to return early next week.
