FORECAST DISCUSSION

One more day with excessive heat.

Today’s forecast high of 110° would break the old record of 108° set back in 1912. If temps reach 110° again today, it would mark the earliest Tucson’s recorded three straight 110°+ days. An Excessive Heat Warning continues through 7 PM today, including much of Pima, Santa Cruz, Pinal, Graham and Greenlee Counties.

Responsible for the brutal temperatures is a dome of high pressure, which slides east tomorrow. Afternoon high temps drop to the 100-104° range the remainder of the work week as a result.

Late in the work week, moisture starts to trickle into the state from the south. This may lead to a few isolated thunderstorms for Metro Tucson & points east. Storm chances sit at 10% for the Old Pueblo Thursday, increasing to 20% by Friday. Drier air moves in for the upcoming weekend.
