Monday’s Tucson Forecast: Welcome to the year’s first heat wave!

The Old Pueblo broke the ice Sunday. Triple digits plan on sticking around for a while.

High pressure cranks up the heat for the work week. Daytime temperatures peak around 100-102° this afternoon through Thursday. These temperatures run roughly 10° above average for early May.

Partly cloudy skies today gives way to more sunshine the rest of the week.

Snapping the triple digit streak is a storm system approaching northern Arizona by late week. Gusty winds develop Thursday, which likely increase the wildfire danger. Expect breezes to linger into Saturday as highs drop to the low to mid 90s for Mother’s Day weekend.

Gusty winds should decrease in time for Sunday.
