TUCSON - Textbook Sonoran Desert swelter on tap today.
High pressure parked over the state cranks daytime highs 7-9° above average, according to News 4 Meteorologist Jeff Beamish. Tucson peaks in the 103-105° range under mostly sunny skies, marking the 5th triple digit day of 2014 & hottest day of the year thus far.
Cloud cover increases tonight, as moisture from Tropical Storm Amanda slides in from the south. Enough moisture lingers tomorrow and Friday for isolated mountain thunderstorms. Valley floors may see a few sprinkles at best.
High pressure regains control of our weather by the weekend and early next week. Starting Friday, high temps reach the 100's & should remain there through the middle of next week.
