THE CLIFF NOTES

Tonight – Clear skies. 69°, southeast wind 5-10 MPH.
Tomorrow – Sunny, hot. 103°, west wind 5-10 MPH.
Late June heat in early Autumn.
High pressure anchored over the Colorado River Valley cranks temps 8-12° above average the next few days. Metro Tucson reaches the upper 90s today under sunny skies. Northwest winds prevail this afternoon in the 5-10 MPH range.
Wednesday’s forecast high of 103° is a degree shy of tying the record for September 30th. It is possible Thursday could be the hottest October day ever recorded in Tucson, with the forecast highs of 103° eclipsing the record mark of 102° set in 2010.
Models indicate relief from the heat this weekend, with a series of troughs passing north of the state. The second in these series of troughs may tap into some tropical moisture Sunday and Monday, helping to develop isolated showers. High temps cool off to the upper 80s Monday.
