TUCSON - Triple digit heat continued for the 25th consecutive day on Tuesday at the Tucson International Airport.
Hot, dry and sunny weather will continue for the remaining of the upcoming week with one major difference; much hotter temperatures.
According to Meteorologist Matt Brode, an intense area of high pressure will to move into the desert Southwest by Friday.
The high pressure cell is situated in a perfect position during the perfect time of year to produce extremely high temperatures.
Excessive Heat Watches have been issued for much of the region from Friday through Sunday.
Highs could soar past 110 in Tucson and above 115 in Phoenix and the western deserts.
Some moisture could filter into the region as soon as Friday bringing a chance of isolated storms, mainly to the mountains East of Tucson.
So we must first get through the heat before we get the rain.
