Last hurrah for 100 degrees in the forecast

Posted: Updated:

TUCSON - Unusually warm temperatures are forecast for Tucson again today. The airport - where records are kept - topped off at 99 degrees on Wednesday, and Thursday could be even hotter.

According to Chief Meteorologist Matt Brode, 100 degrees is the forecast high and it wouldn't take too much of a boost to tie the record of 101 which was set back exactly 100 years ago (1917).

Mid-to-upper 90s are in the forecast all the way through the weekend. Slightly cooler weather should arrive just in time for the new workweek.

Here are some factoids to consider:

- The latest Tucson has ever reached 100 degrees was October 16th in 1991

- The October which received the most 100 degree days was four occurrences in 1991 and 1917

-The last time Tucson was 100 degrees or greater was September, 13th

-The average last day of 100 degree heat is usually observed on September, 26th
