So, Yeah, Spring is Over

Posted By on Fri, Apr 20, 2012 at 9:09 AM

Hope you enjoyed that brief period of time where the temperature was tolerable for Tucsonans — you know, between 70 and 80; anything else is too hot or cold — because those days are about to be over.

The National Weather Service is forecasting a high of 100 on Sunday at the Tucson International Airport, where this region's official weather records are recorded. If that triple-digit disaster does come to happen Sunday it would mark the second earliest we've ever reached that ... milestone.

The earliest: April 19, 1989. The latest? June 22, back in 1905.

The official 'average' occurrence of the first 100-degree day is May 26, according to the National Weather Service, but that's based on data going back to the late 1890s. This decade it's come around May 16 on average, with last year not happening until May 28.

Pardon me while I go out and stock up on SPF 90 sunblock and portable self-misters.
