Ice Break in the near future?

Triple digit potential next week…according to the GFS model.

Above shows the forecast highs for next Tuesday (May 26th), which comes very close to 100°. Model specifics aren’t very accurate 7-10 days out, so take the numbers with a grain of salt.

However, late last week I noticed a general theme with our long range data. The unsettled May pattern I’ve so-lovingly called “Trough Fest” appears to be shifting toward a warm, dry trend. A lot can change between now and early next week, but there is some indication of hot in the not-so-distant future.

For what it’s worth, Tucson’s average 1st 100° day is May 26th. Stay tuned!
