TUCSON - Temperatures continue on their way up for Mother's Day in the Old Pueblo.
Saturday brought daytime highs topping 95 at TIA five degrees above average for May12, according to Meteorologist John Patrick. The forecast high for Mother's Day is set at 99 but if we are able to get to 100 it will be the first time for the month of May . Other than daytime highs nearly ten degrees above average for Sunday we could see a breeze kick up in the afternoon with NW winds 10-20mph.
A slight chance of thunderstorms is popping up on the radar for Sunday and Monday in far eastern portions of Arizona. As a weak weather disturbance moves through the four corners during this time a stray thunderstorm or two could fire up along the New Mexico border. Expect the bulk of the activity to stay well to our east and contained to the higher elevations.
A high pressure ridge holds strong into the work week with daytime highs generally hovering right around the triple digit mark through Thursday. Little day to day change is expected through this period with generally sunny skies persisting for mid May.
