TUCSON - Warming trend continues to wrap up the month of September and the Monsoon.
Daytime highs are forecast to climb about five degrees above average today topping 96 in the Old Pueblo, according to Meteorologist John Patrick. High pressure building into the western states will continue to jump the temperatures up to near record values Monday through Wednesday. High 90s will be the call for the start of the work week and the month of October. Temperatures start to come down by the end of the week of as a low pressure system tries to move into the region.
