FIRST ALERT FORECAST – Localized heavy rain and isolated flooding possible Friday afternoon
TUCSON, Ariz. (KOLD News 13) - Showers and storms have been ongoing in Cochise County Friday morning, slowly spreading into Graham County. This wave of activity will help fire up scattered storms farther west (around Tucson) once temperatures heat into the mid to upper 90s Friday afternoon. Localized heavy rainfall, isolated flooding, gusty winds, and lightning are threats with any storms we see today.
Our storm chances become more isolated in nature Saturday and Sunday before briefly increasing in coverage for the 4th of July. Not looking like a washout by any means but keep an eye on the radar and head indoors if lightning strikes! Dew points will stay high with temperatures topping out in the upper 90s near 100° through the holiday weekend.
A drier southwesterly flow will trim our storm chances down to 10% or less for much of next workweek. Highs back near the climate normal of 102° by Wednesday.
FRIDAY: 40% chance for showers and storms with highs in the upper 90s.
SATURDAY: Partly cloudy skies with isolated storms possible. Highs in the upper 90s.
SUNDAY: Partly cloudy skies with isolated storms possible. Highs in the upper 90s.
4TH OF JULY: 30% chance for showers and storms with highs in the upper 90s.
TUESDAY: Partly cloudy skies with a high near 100°.
