TUCSON - Above average temps for the foreseeable future.
Highs at or around 90 are on tap through the remainder of the work week, according to News 4 Meteorologist Jeff Beamish. This is a result of high pressure over southern New Mexico and a dry westerly flow aloft. Along with the warmth comes little cloud cover and light winds around 10-15 MPH.
Highs through Friday are running roughly 5-7 degrees above average.
The heat will be on heading into the weekend. We'll see a stronger area of high pressure invade the Sonoran Desert, cranking temps up to near record levels. Saturday through next Monday features highs in the mid 90's for Tucson, with upper 90's west of the metro. For now, it looks like we'll be 4-6 degrees shy of our first triple digit day for 2012.
Sunday's record high is 98 degrees, with next Monday's record high at 96 degrees. Tucson should be a few degrees under these marks.
