FORECAST DISCUSSION

Last call for record highs in the Old Pueblo.

Today’s forecast high of 94° would match the old record set in 2007. Partly cloudy skies dominate most of the day, with some clearing expected by late afternoon. Nighttime lows bottom out in the low 60s for Metro Tucson under mostly clear skies.

This weekend features plenty of heat, as temperatures run 10-12° above average. Afternoon highs will come close to record levels, but much of southern Arizona will avoid rewriting weather history. Models indicate a Pacific storm system swinging toward the state next week. This feature knocks temperatures into the mid 80s for Halloween and low 80s by Wednesday.
