Will clouds spoil scattered storm chances?

Posted: Updated:

TUCSON - A complicated forecast for southern Arizona over the next 24 hours.

On one hand, a surge of moisture from the Gulf of California is sufficient enough for scattered storm development. However, heavy cloud cover blanketed much of the Sonoran Desert this morning. According to 4WARN Meteorologist Jeff Beamish, storm chances hinge on how quickly clouds burn off & whether storms can fire up northeast of Tucson.

Metro Tucson stands a 40% chance of scattered evening storms. If clouds linger into the afternoon hours, rain chances will decrease. Daytime highs peak in the mid to upper 90s.

A decent chance of scattered storms remains in the forecast through the weekend and early next week. Thursday and Friday features a 40% chance of storms, decreasing to 30% starting Saturday.
