TUCSON - The Old Pueblo hits a triple digit milestone this afternoon.
Saturday was the 50th triple digit day of the year with a high of 102, according to Meteorologist John Patrick. The record amount of triple digits was set back in 1994 with 99 days. It doesn't look like we'll break that record but we'll definitely be adding to our total this week. High pressure anchors itself over Arizona throughout the seven day forecast bringing daytime highs to near 105 by Tuesday.
A couple of isolated thunderstorm cells found their way into Tucson this evening mainly staying on the far southeast and northwest sides. Most neighborhoods in the metro stayed dry as storms found their into drier air. Scattered storms will make up the forecast for Sunday afternoon and evening as moisture increases across Southern Arizona. Thunderstorms will bring periods of heavy rain, strong wind gusts and dangerous lightning. Enough moisture will hang around to keep hit or miss storms in the forecast throughout next week.
