A warm up in on the way in the old pueblo. That means we could break the record for highest average yearly temperature in Tucson. Currently, the warmest years on record are 2014 and last year, 2016. Both years saw an average of 72.1 degrees. 2017 is on trend to obtain an average of 73.1 degrees, breaking both records.
This week's warming trend is due to a ridge of high pressure moving East across Arizona. Day time highs will be in the upper 70s and possibly low 80s this weekend. We are 10-15 degrees above average for this time of year, but as this low pressure system moves through, high temperatures will dip just slightly into early next week.
