The summer sizzle and the slumbering storms

TUCSON – The narrative has been the same weather wise across SE Arizona for much of the summer: hot and dry.

Tuesday in Tucson proved no different as storms were absent and temperatures were high. High enough to tie for the second hottest day so far in this blistering summer at 109 degrees.

Wednesday will be similar to Tuesday as we approach the record of 108 degrees set back in 1930. In the forecast: 109 for Wednesday’s high.

Another excessive heat warning is in effect for Tucson for Wednesday so remember to limit your time outdoors and drink plenty of water.

Signs finally point to an uptick in storm activity by late in the workweek.
