Is triple digit heat done for the year?

Posted: Updated:

TUCSON - 68 times this year, the Old Pueblo has recorded triple digit heat.

History says there won’t be a 69th day.

Tucson’s average last 100° day arrives around September 18th. So far in 2017, the last triple digit day was recorded on September 13th. The current forecast calls for highs in the low to mid 90s to wrap up September.

While it is very unlikely Tucson hits triple digit territory in October, it has happened.

In the 123 year history of weather record keeping in Tucson, there have only been 28 October days featuring highs in the 100s. The last October 100° was back in 2015, when TIA hit 101° on the 1st. Tucson’s latest 100° reading is October 16th, 1991.

That being said, historical probabilities suggest Tucson has a 0.7% chance in any year to have an October 100° day. May the odds be ever in your favor this Fall.
