FIRST ALERT FORECAST 10pm October 16, 2020

TUCSON, Ariz. (KOLD News 13) - October 16th marks a mercury milestone for Tucson. In 1991 we recorded the latest occurrence of 100 degrees on that date. And we did it again this October 16th! In typical Tucson fashion, not only did we hit the record of 100 degrees, we outdid the record by one degree as our high temperature peaked at 101 degrees Friday. High pressure is partially to blame as it continues to prevent the jet stream (the road that storms like to follow) from dipping far enough south to bring us any opportunities for rain or even cooler air.

TONIGHT: Mostly clear skies with overnight lows in the low 60s.

SATURDAY: Sunny with highs in the upper 90s.

SUNDAY: Sunny with highs in the mid to upper 90s.

MONDAY: Sunny with highs in the mid 90s.

TUESDAY: Sunny with highs in the mid 90s.

WEDNESDAY: Sunny with highs in the low 90s.

THURSDAY: Sunny with highs in the low 90s.

FRIDAY: Sunny with highs in the low 90s.
