TUCSON - The weather word for the week: hot!
An emerging area of high pressure south of the International Border keeps the heat locked in over southern Arizona, according to News 4 Meteorologist Jeff Beamish. Highs today through the weekend should be in the 100-103 degree range in Tucson, under sunny skies.
Gusty winds look to develop Saturday afternoon, as a cold front skirts north of the state.
Models indicate another high pressure ridge to set up shop over the desert southwest next week, keeping highs in the triple digits. Overnight lows through next week should be in the upper 60's to low 70's for the Tucson metro.
If the current forecast holds up, we'll add 7 more days to this year's Triple Digit Tracker. As of today, Tucson has hit 100 degrees or above 13 times in 2012.
