TODAY’S FORECAST DISCUSSION
Here comes the heat.
High pressure builds over the state the next several days. While backyard thermometers across Metro Tucson reach triple digits today, the airport likely tops out in the upper 90s with sunny skies.
Expect the 1st triple digit day of 2015 to arrive Saturday afternoon. This would be a few days later than the average date for the first 100° day, which historically sits around May 26th. Triple digit heat sticks around through the middle of next week as high pressure slowly loosens its grip on the state.
Off the Mexico coast, Tropical Storm Andres is slated to become a hurricane later today. Latest computer model data shows Andres staying away from land, with moisture confined to areas well south of Arizona late next week.
