TODAY’S BEAMISH BLOGCAST
THE CLIFF NOTES
Today – Mostly sunny. 90°, west-northwest wind 5-10 MPH.
Tonight – Clear. 62°, southeast wind 5-10 MPH.
Tomorrow – Sunny. 93°, north-northwest wind 5-10 MPH.
It will be a close call for the 19th straight 90° day.
Highs this afternoon peak in the upper 80s to low 90s across Metro Tucson. Mostly sunny skies today gives way to clear skies tonight. Lows bottom out in the low 60s by daybreak on Wednesday.
Mother Nature cranks up the heat for the latter half of the work week. High pressure expands over the state, driving temperatures toward record levels Thursday and Friday. Thursday’s forecast high of 97° would break the old record of 94° set in 1937 & mark Tucson’s latest 95°+ reading. Record-tying heat is possible Friday.
Daytime highs remain in the 90s this weekend, which would run the October 90s streak to 24 days. A storm system passing north of the state on Halloween may potentially snap the 90s streak, dropping highs to the 80s.
