Weeks heat peaks today

TUCSON - Warmest day since June 1 is on the way for the middle of your work week.

A forecast high of 105 today will make it the fourth time this year we've seen that mark or better, according to Meteorologist John Patrick. We don't have any heat advisories in effect for southern Arizona but you're still going to want to drink plenty of fluids and limit that daytime activity.

As an area of low pressure builds into the west coast we'll knock the temperatures down to wrap up the work week. Daytime highs come down to an average 100 by Friday before they start to rise once again. The same system will bring some afternoon breezes the next couple days with gusts peaking 25-30mph on Thursday.

An influx of moisture this weekend for far eastern Arizona will bring a slight chance for isolated mountain thunderstorms on Saturday and Sunday. However, most of the thunderstorm activity this weekend looks like it will stay well to our east in New Mexico.

Daytime highs are on the rise by Father's Day as a big ridge builds back into the southwest United States. The heat continues up for mid June as we make a run at our first 110 of the year by next week.
