TUCSON - With the monsoon taking a break in Southern Arizona temperatures continue to rise.
Daytime highs shot back up into the triple digits this afternoon for the 44th time this year. As high pressure builds over the region Tucson will see temperatures about ten degrees above average by midweek.
Highs peak on Wednesday and Thursday near 110 degrees which would both be record highs for these days. In fact, the last time Tucson has seen a 110 degree day in the month of July was in 2011.
A few isolated storms are possible each afternoon this week, however, the region will be moisture starved so the best chance for these will be the higher elevations southeast of Tucson. We'll watch for a possible uptick in storm coverage as we head into next weekend.
