FORECAST DISCUSSION

The October 90s streak was snapped yesterday, merely serving as brief reprieve from abnormal Autumn warmth.

Metro Tucson peaks in the low 90s this afternoon. High pressure slides toward the state over the next 48 hours, driving daytime highs to record levels starting tomorrow. Thursday’s forecast high of 97° would break the old record of 94° set back in 1937. Record-tying heat is expected Friday afternoon under mostly sunny skies.

Afternoon temperatures run a degree or two shy of record levels this weekend. Thereafter, models hint at a storm system passing north of Arizona. This knocks highs into the 80s for the first part of the new work week. Halloween night looks picture perfect for the Old Pueblo, with evening temps dropping into the upper 70s to low 80s.
