Warmest January on record comes to a close

Posted: Updated:

TUCSON - The January that felt more like March wraps up on a warm note.

Highs this afternoon peak in the upper 70s to low 80s across Metro Tucson. According to 4WARN Meteorologist Jeff Beamish, highs today run 12-14° above average under sunny skies. Overnight lows are expected to bottom out in the mid 40s for much of the Old Pueblo.

January 2018's average temperature currently stands at 59°, which will be the warmest on record for Tucson. Through yesterday, Tucson has recorded 18 days at or above 75° this month. That is a new record for the month of January.

A strong dome of high pressure anchors off the California coast heading into the weekend and early next week. This feature locks in daytime highs in the upper 70s to low 80s to start February.
