How Tucsonans Read a Weather Forecast in July

Posted By on Wed, Jul 23, 2014 at 11:45 AM

Pretty much.
  • Pretty much.

Not much else to say about that image—it's how Tucsonans get through July and August. But the good news is the partial screen shot above was taken early yesterday, and since then, depending on what weather service you are viewing, most forecasts have lowered today's high temperature down around 106° to 104°. And our monsoon storms appear to be coming to the rescue, as chances of rain have been upgraded from that 10% figure to 30% to 40%, increasing as the day wears on.

And though it was predicted on Monday, it does not look like Tucson will top the highest temperature ever on this day, 109°, achieved in 1987. And nowhere near Tucson's all-time high of 117°, which was recorded on June 26, 1990.

Then again, as of 11:30 a.m., we've already passed the century mark. Keep refreshing that radar map.
