It’s hot, getting hotter and the monsoon is asleep at the wheel

TUCSON – The mercury topped off at 107 degrees in Tucson on Wednesday tying the record set back in 2015. Excessive Heat Warnings were in place over the region and will be again on Thursday as the city approaches 110 degrees.

Little signs of the monsoon are in the forecast as storm chances will be a meager 10% Thursday and Friday: and favoring places south and east of Tucson.

It’s been a hot summer so far for not only Arizona but much of the nation. For Arizona, July 2019 will go into the record books as the 13th hottest since records have been kept in 1895.
