Tucson has 50 straight days of triple-digit heat today, and next week the total will increase. A heat wave warning was issued this morning…
High pressure is shifting to a disadvantageous position, cutting off water supply and increasing our body temperature. Storms are possible, but most of southeastern Arizona will remain dry through the weekend.
An even bigger impact across southeastern Arizona will be the heat in the next few days. Heading into the weekend, temperatures will range between 104° and 113°. As a result, low-lying areas of Pima, Pinal, Santa Cruz, Cochise, Graham and Greenlee counties will have an excessive heat warning in effect at 10am this morning and will continue through Sunday evening. Some all-time records will also be in jeopardy! Limit your time outside this weekend and stay hydrated.
The high will move into a more favorable position by early next week, slowly bringing moisture to southeastern Arizona. At this time, there is a small chance of a storm, mainly in the south and east, starting Sunday night. Temperatures will drop slightly as the new work week begins, with highs around 107 degrees Celsius.
