TUCSON - Today will be one of the "cooler" days with highs right around 104° for the hottest spots and we have a chance for isolated storms! Temperatures reach near record levels by the end of the work week and an Excessive Heat Watch will go into effect starting Thursday!
Let's start with the good news first! Some moisture has made its way into Southern Arizona and that will provide us with a chance for isolated storms each afternoon the rest of the week. Looks like the best spot today will be Santa Cruz County with a 30% chance for storms!
An Excessive Heat Watch will go into effect Thursday morning through Sunday evening and includes the cities of Tucson, Ajo, Organ Pipe Cactus N.M., Sells, Nogales, Green Valley, Marana, Vail, Picacho Peak State Park, Mammoth, Oracle, Clifton, and Safford.
Temperatures will range anywhere from 108° to 114° from Tucson to the west and from 103° to 108° in Eastern Valleys. Be sure to limit your time outside and stay hydrated! Don't forget to protect your furry friends too!
