TUCSON - More of the same with highs back in the triple digits this afternoon. Temperatures will continue to warm several degrees above average through the weekend and most of next week as well!
High pressure will keep much of the West Coast in its grasp with highs in the upper 90s and low 100s. A trough digging into middle parts of the country early next week could bring some "cooler" air to areas east of Tucson but the question is how far west will that cooler air go? As of now, highs have backed off slightly but it will still be several degrees above average with temperatures in the upper 90s.
Yesterday marked the 95th day above 100° and the record to beat is 99 days in 1994. With the most recent update to the forecast, triple digits are expected today and tomorrow. If we don't hit 100° again next week, that would put 2020 at 97 days so far!
Remember that heat is the number one weather-related cause of death in the country. For more details on the warning signs click here.
