Valentine's Day weather of years past

Posted: Updated:

February 14th, 2014 is shaping up to be a warm one with highs approaching 87° in Tucson. 

While that is nearly 20° warmer than the average high of 68°, the temperatures remains shy of the record.

On Valentine's Day 1957, Tucson reached a high of 92°. 

That also happens to be the Tucson all-time record high for the month of February. 

The records date back to the late 1800s.

The coldest February 14th morning was in 1908 with a low of 24°. 

The coolest Valentine's Day afternoon was only 46° in 1903. 

In 1954, the wettest Valentine's Day occurred with 0.67" of rain.

On February 14th, 1990 half an inch of snow fell in Tucson. 

February 14th is also Arizona's birthday.

Arizona gained statehood in 1912, making it 102 years old this year.  

In 1912, the weather in Tucson was sunny with a cool morning low of 35° and a warm afternoon high of 78°.

Plus this year, a full moon rises right after sunset on Valentine's Day. 

The weather is perfect for watching the show in the sky with your sweetheart.
