Tucson’s consecutive streak of 100-degree or higher days continues with the National Weather Service saying it hit the century mark shortly before heavy rains arrived.

The storms quickly dropped the temperature into the 70s by 2 p.m.

The streak is now at 35-straight days of 100 or higher for Tucson. The heat streak began June 1 and continued through the first week of July.

The record is 39 days of 100 or higher, set in 2005.
