TUCSON - What were you doing on April 19th, 1989?

It was on this date that Ice Break history was made. Tucson International Airport reached a daytime high of 101° that afternoon. This marks the earliest triple digit day ever recorded in the Old Pueblo. Tucson added 92 more days at or above 100° in 1989, marking the 2nd most triple digit days recorded. 

For perspective, the historical average day for Tucson's 1st triple digit day is May 26th.

Reaching triple digits in April is extremely rare. Since 1895, only 11 days in this month have featured a recorded high temperature at or above 100°. Click here for more insight into April triple digit temps in Tucson.
