The official start to the 2021 monsoon is coming in hot, with excessive heat warnings in effect across Pima County and much of Southern Arizona through the weekend.

On Tuesday, the first official day of the monsoon, Tucson shattered a 125-year record when it hit 115 degrees. The mark was two degrees shy of the city’s all-time record of 117 degrees, set June 26, 1990.
