TUCSON - Another triple digit day wraps up the weekend but cooler temperatures on the way.
Tucson recorded its 73rd triple digit high this year topping 101 today and it could be the last triple digit we see this year, according to Meteorologist John Patrick. A low pressure system pushing into the Pacific Northwest will skirt north of Arizona bringing cooler temperatures to the region. Mid to high 90s start the work week but they gradually drop to the upper 80s by Saturday.
Keeping an eye on Hurricane Miriam churning in the eastern pacific. Model runs are starting to favor a north easterly track late in the week putting her off the Baja coast and transporting moisture into southern Arizona. For now it looks like isolated storms possible for Saturday and Sunday. With the Monsoon not officially over until September 30th this will be the last chance to get in on some late season rainfall.
