TUCSON - Warm, not hot, until the weekend.
High pressure off Baja California drives the weather locally over the next several days, according to News 4 Meteorologist Jeff Beamish. The net result is sunny skies and high temperatures 7-9 degrees above average through Friday across southern Arizona. Highs today through Wednesday top out in the upper 90's for much of the Tucson metro, with Marana and points west hitting 100.
The 100's hold off for Tucson until this weekend. High pressure slides from Baja California over Arizona, cranking up the thermostat. Sunday's forecast high in Tucson is 101, 4 degrees shy of tying a record.
These temperatures will add to an already warmer than average start to May. As of yesterday, the average high temp for Tucson this month has been 91.6 degrees, which is 3 degrees above average.
