Tucson weather: Hot and windy, yesterday's rain

  • Updated
Windy day in Tucson

In this 2017 file photo, students put up with a windy day as they walk in front of the University of Arizona library.

Rain is often seen as gloomy and sad. But in Tucson, rain is quite the opposite. 

Tucson finally saw some rain yesterday afternoon — .13 inches to be exact. 

A column-shaped art installation also toppled over near 22nd Street and Kino Parkway, supposedly due to a microburst from yesterday's weather. 

As for today's weather predictions: imagine you're standing outside in 100-degree weather with a hair dryer pointed at your face.

That's probably how today will feel. 

Temperatures will be hot, and it's expected to be windy. The wind is expected to slow down this evening.

There's also a slight chance of rain expected today, but those chances will show a major increase throughout the weekend.

High: 106

Low: 83
