Record setting September heat for Tucson

Posted: Updated:

TUCSON - High pressure supplies record heat for Tucson on Tuesday.

The Tucson International Airport has reached a high of 106 degrees on Tuesday afternoon, breaking the previous record high for a September 12th which was 105 degrees set back in 1943.

Tucson's average last 105 degree day of the year is August 9th but we have hit 105 degrees as late as September 22nd.

A system moving by to our north will help bring the temperatures back to normal a little later on this week with the mid 90s back in the forecast by Friday. As this happens expect the winds to pick up on Thursday and Friday with gusts likely reaching 30mph. 

These systems typically mean that southern Arizona is transferring out of our seasonal monsoon pattern and into a more fall-like set-up. With that said, rain chances will decrease in the coming days, however, some of the long range models suggest we may see a little bit of subtropical moisture return early next week for a slight chance of rain on Monday.
