110 degree heat in Tucson not as common as you think

Posted: Updated:

TUCSON - An extended stretch of 110 degree heat is on the way to Tucson this week. 

A strong ridge of high pressure could bring the longest stretch of daytime highs at 110 degrees or greater in over 20 years to Tucson. This would be quite the heat wave considering Tucson doesn't even hit 110 degrees every year.  Out of the last 121 years of record keeping in Tucson, 69 of them have been 110 free. The last time Tucson went 110 free was in 2014.

The longest stretch of 110s was back in 1994 with six straight days. This heat wave will likely bring 5 consecutive 110s making for the longest streak of its kind in 23 years.

Temperatures will approach 115 each afternoon from Monday through Wednesday likely tying or breaking the record high for those corresponding dates. 

Stay safe this week by staying indoors as much as possible and hydrating throughout the day.
