Weekend heat

Ernest Soro takes a swig from his drink while he pauses to set down for a nap by his bicycle underneath the shade trees at Reid Park on June 16, 2016, in Tucson, Ariz. High temperatures are expected to eclipse decades-old heat records for Father’s Day weekend.

Get ready for a warm one! This month's unseasonably high temperatures peak today, with near-record heat occurring across Southeast Arizona.

A few showers and thunderstorms are possible near the New Mexico border, with dry conditions from Tucson to the west.

Dry conditions are expected to continue through the weekend, as above average heat continues.
