TODAY’S FORECAST DISCUSSION
90s now, but triple digits are lurking.
Daytime highs run 1-3° below average in Metro Tucson this afternoon. Today’s forecast high of 93° would mark the 15th straight day with below average temps. This is longest such streak during the month of May since 1985. Mostly sunny skies prevail this afternoon, followed by clear skies overnight.
Highs in the 90s are expected for the abbreviated work week.
A strong area of high pressure develops over the Four Corners this weekend, bringing the first threat of triple digit temperatures this year. Although there is an outside chance of hitting 100° on Saturday, Tucson likely peaks in the upper 90s. Best chance of breaking the ice comes Sunday afternoon, with a forecast high of 101°.
