TODAY’S BEAMISH BLOGCAST
THE CLIFF NOTES
Today – Partly cloudy. 107°, west wind 10-15 MPH.
Tonight – Mostly clear. 80°, southeast wind 5 MPH.
Tomorrow – Partly cloudy. 107°, west wind 10-15 MPH.
Not as brutally hot the rest of the week.
High pressure over the Four Corners drives temperatures 4-6° above average today. Metro Tucson peaks in the 106-108° range under partly cloudy skies. Record heat is unlikely this afternoon as Tucson hits triple digits for the 16th time in 2016.
Ample moisture is in play to support a few isolated storms along the International Border & mountains this afternoon through the remainder of the work week. A stray thunderstorm can’t be ruled out for the Old Pueblo to start the weekend, but most of the metro stays dry.
Triple digit heat continues into early next week. More sunshine breaks out after the weekend as high pressure park directly over Arizona.
SKY CANDY OF THE DAY
Strawberry Moon on the Summer solstice, captured Monday evening by Sean Parker. This is the first time since 1967 June’s full Moon occurred on the first day of Summer. It won’t happen again for another 46 years.
