TUCSON - The Old Pueblo breaks its second record high in the matter of days.
Tucson topped out at 109 today breaking the previous record of 108 which was set back in 1993, according to Meteorologist John Patrick. Today also marks the warmest day of the year so far but we aren't done breaking records quite yet.
The heat is set to peak tomorrow with a forecast high of 110 for Monday afternoon. This would break another daily high record but what might seem even more impressive is that it could be the first 110 in the month of August since 2003. This August heat wave has had daytime highs at 105 plus for seven straight days and temperatures in the 90s aren't expected again until Thursday.
The Monsoon has taken a little break over the last couple of days but looks to come storming back this week. Isolated storms will start the work week but thunderstorm activity will quickly pick up by midweek as moisture turns more abundant. For now the most active days of the upcoming week look like Thursday and Friday.
