Storm activity will be mainly near the International Border and towards the White Mountains but we can't completely rule out a stray storm in Tucson this afternoon/evening. Unfortunately, that opportunity dwindles into the weekend for Tucson but there's still a chance for afternoon storms to the south and east.
We could see record-breaking temperatures this weekend thanks to a strong ridge of high pressure!
