Enjoy the 90s this weekend before we heat up again

TUCSON, Ariz. — Scattered storms to the south of Tucson this Saturday. There's moisture in the air, but our warming atmosphere is becoming too stable for too much activity this afternoon.

Sunday high pressure begins to build and besides for the possibility of isolated storms near the border a drying and heating trend begins too.

Temperatures are above normal Monday and get near excessive heat criteria by Tuesday but should be a few degrees off from our recent 109/110 in Tucson.

Luckily the heating trend doesn't continue for long. Wednesday will still be hot, but some slight chances for storms begin that day.

We'll feel relief by Thursday when temps lower to about 100 with a chance for storms. 90s and slight chances for storms after that.

We're at a time of year when eyes look to the pacific for some tropical storm development that could help knock this "nonsoon" into gear... but so far nothing definite on the horizon.
