Another day of record heat in Tucson! Today's high officially reached 112° and that erased the old record of 109°. The good news is that we do have a slight cooling trend on the horizon. However, Excessive Heat Warnings remain in effect through Saturday evening... pic.twitter.com/wVRs6q6Wl4— Cuyler Diggs (@CDiggsKGUNWX) June 18, 2021
