Stars, stripes, but no storms

Posted: Updated:

TUCSON - Atmospheric fireworks fail to fire up this 4th of July.

Plenty of sunshine and sizzling temps are expected for the Old Pueblo, according to 4WARN Meteorologist Jeff Beamish. Highs this afternoon peak in the 103-105° range. Temperatures drop to the low 90s in the metro area by fireworks time this evening.

Dangerous heat settles in tomorrow as high pressure expands westward. With daytime highs around 108-110°, an Excessive Heat Warning has been issued for Metro Tucson on Thursday. Highs at or above 110° are likely west of Tucson.

An isolated storm may develop tomorrow and Saturday, but models indicate at an uptick in thunderstorm development starting the second half of the weekend. Scattered storms are possible Sunday into early next week as high pressure parks north of the state.
