The last three days in the Old Pueblo have featured highs at or above 115°, which has never been recorded in our city’s history.
Excessive Heat Warnings continue through Sunday. While today’s forecast high of 110° won’t break any records, it would mark the 4th straight day at or above 110°. If the forecast comes to fruition, this would be Tucson’s 3rd longest 110°+ streak on record.
Tucson’s longest 110°+ streak is 6 days, set back on June 24th-29th, 1994.
The 110° temperature streak likely ends tomorrow, only for weekend highs to surge back above the 110° mark. Saturday’s forecast high of 112° is just a degree shy of tying the record set in 1994. Between now and Sunday, complete any outdoor activities no later than 9 AM. Failure to do so could have dire health consequences.
Extreme heat looks to retreat early next week, as Monsoon moisture starts to trickle into the state. Metro Tucson stands a 10% chance of storms Monday through Wednesday. Daytime highs for the upcoming work week peak in the 104-108° range.
