Climbing toward the century mark

Posted: Updated:

TUCSON - Since 1894, there have been 28 October days at or above 100° in the Old Pueblo. We'll get close to adding to the total this week.

Gusty southwest winds are expected this afternoon, according to 4WARN Meteorologist Jeff Beamish. Breezes will be in the 15-30 MPH range, possibly kicking up some blowing dust on I-10. Highs reach the mid 90s today, running 4-6° above average under sunny skies.

A storm system north of the state may develop scattered storms mainly east of Tucson for the middle portion of the week. An isolated metro storm can't be ruled out Thursday.

High pressure anchors over Baja California for the upcoming weekend, driving a strong warming trend. Daytime high temperatures close in on record levels as Tucson reaches the upper 90s. Saturday and Sunday's record highs are 101°, set in 1987 and 1910, respectively.

Of note, the historical odds of Tucson having an October 100° day is a mere 0.7%.
