TUCSON - Record temperatures are back in the forecast to wrap up the weekend.
High pressure cranks up the heat once again today with a forecast high of 109, according to Meteorologist John Patrick. If 109 is hit today it will break the previous record of 108 which was set back in 1993. Today will also mark the seventh straight day of temperatures at or above 105. Record breaking heat is in the forecast through Tuesday so make sure to drink plenty of water and limit that daytime activity.
Isolated storms are possible today mainly in the higher elevations south and east of Tucson. Starting Monday scattered storms will be possible including Tucson and points east with less activity in western Pima County. Deeper moisture returns to the region by the middle of the work week to bring more widespread Monsoon activity.
