We have to go all the way back to October to discover the last time Tucson reached 90 degrees. We won’t have to wait much longer.
Before the heat, a few systems will pass well to the north of the State, but close enough to increase our cloud cover from time-to-time and continue the breezy conditions we’ve been dealing with. This also means more allergies.
Fire weather is escalated due to the warm, dry and breezy conditions, but down substantially from one year ago thanks to abundant Winter rain and mountain snow.
Temperatures from Wednesday through Sunday will range from nighttime lows in the 50s to near 80 (mid 80s warmest days) for daytime highs. Then a big dome of high pressure moves overhead on Monday and Tuesday.
Monday and Tuesday will feature the warmest temperatures we’ve seen since October, and yes, that means 90+ heat.
