TUCSON - For the 34th consecutive day the temperature climbed above 100 degrees at the Tucson International Airport.
According to Meteorologist Matt Brode this streak of triple digit temperatures ranks as the 4th longest since records have been kept.
Isolated, mainly afternoon thunderstorms, will continue near the mountains Friday and for much of the weekend.
Highs will be near 100 each day, and if Wednesday arrives without a high below 100, the all-time record of 39 consecutive days at or above 100 degrees set back in 2005 will be tied.
Some signs point to a more active monsoon by next week which would mean better rain chances for the valley floors.
