TUCSON - Are we going to break the ice on the Santa Cruz river?
Triple digit highs are expected at Tucson International today, according to Meteorologist John Patrick. If we do hit that 100 mark it will be considered a new daily record for April 22 breaking the previous record of 98 set way back in 1965. 100 today will also be a milestone for the second earliest 100 day since 1895. The earliest we ever reached 100 in the Old Pueblo was April 19, 1989 so we just miss that record by a few days if we do get there.
Cooler air makes it here by late next week as we finally get a little help form the jet stream dropping by our region. Daytime highs should drop back into the 80's to wrap up the workweek and they stick around into the upcoming weekend.
