TUCSON - The first 90° day of 2014 expected this afternoon.
High pressure building over the West Coast will drive daytime highs about 10° above average this afternoon topping out near 90°. The last time we've seen temperatures this warm was in October of 2013 but our average first 90° of the year does hit around April 9 so this warmth isn't too out of the ordinary.
Temperatures peak at 94° by Wednesday afternoon and we'll see temperatures near 90° under mostly sunny skies through Friday. Slightly cooler temps expected by this weekend as a weak disturbance moves through the region.
Look to the eastern sky around sunset this evening to see Mars at opposition. The planet will be directly opposite the sun in Earth's sky with the three objects coming into alignment. Mars will not look this big and bright again until it's next opposition in 2016.
