Record High Temperatures for Tucson

Posted By on Thu, Mar 14, 2013 at 4:55 PM

This just in: It's hot.

Today marks the second day in a row that Tucson has broken record high temperatures.

At 1 p.m. today it was 89 degrees, breaking the old record of 87 degrees that was reached in 2007, according to The Daily Star. Yesterday, the highest temperature reached was 89 degrees. This broke the record set in 1989 of 88 degrees.

If tomorrow's record high is to continue on this breaking trend, it will have to beat out 93 degrees.

The weekend, however, looks slightly more promising for those with plans to spend it outdoors. Saturday's high is still 90 degrees, but Sunday cools down a bit with a 86 degree high.

In other words, stay indoors or in a pool for the rest of the day, as it could reach up to the low 90s in what is left of the daylight.
