TUCSON - Our mid-June heat continues with more above average temperatures for Tuesday.
A forecast high of 103 today makes it the 19th triple digit of the year so far, according to Meteorologist John Patrick. The least amount of 100s that we've seen was in 1913 with only 21 days so we should easily pass that this week as the warmth continues.
The daytime highs peak on Wednesday as we near the 105 mark for about the third time this month. Our high pressure cranking up the heat will start to breakdown a little as we head into the last half of the week. Our forecast highs drop back closer to normal and right around 100 as soon as Thursday.
The official start of the monsoon is this Friday but no rain in sight quite yet as our dewpoint is still trending slightly below average for this time year. Sunny skies and the low triple digits stick around for Father's Day weekend.
