The 90s return to the Old Pueblo.
High pressure parks over the desert southwest. This feature is the catalyst for the warmest stretch of weather we’ve seen so far in 2015. Expect low 90s for highs this afternoon under sunny skies. East winds this morning peak around 20-30 MPH, but weaken during the afternoon hours.
The mercury climbs to the mid 90’s across Metro Tucson tomorrow and Friday. Western desert of Pima County have an outside shot at hitting 100° for the first time this year. This includes the towns of Ajo and Sells.
