TUCSON - Could history be made in the temperature department this afternoon? High pressure over the southwest drives daytime highs 11-13° above average, according to News 4 Meteorologist Jeff Beamish. Today's forecast high of 94° would tie the record set on this date in 1990. Mostly sunny skies are anticipated across southern Arizona. The Sky Islands see relief from the heat, as Mount Lemmon should top out in the mid 60's today. A cold front passing north of the state next week brings a brief break from the abnormal Autumn warmth. Daytime highs Monday through Wednesday reach the low to mid 80's, while overnight lows return to the 50's. Another warming trend may commence late next week, with highs nearing 90° for Halloween.
