    Last week Border Patrol agents seized more than $1 million in marijuana, as suspects attempted to smuggle it across the border into the U.S. In a recent release from U.S. Customs and Border Protection, agents with the Ajo Station, stopped three suspected smuggling attempts on Sept. 11.

As of Mother's Day, Sunday May 11, Tucson has gone 233 days without a 100 degree temperature. That number may end fairly soon as the summer heat returns this week. The triple digits could appear as early as Thursday or Friday of this week at the Tucson International Airport, the official recording station for the city.  

May 16 is Friday and that happens to be the ten year average of seeing the first 100 degree temperature in Tucson. The temperature records for the city date back to 1894.  The average first triple digit day when those numbers are crunched is May 26.

The good news (if you do not want to see that number yet) is that we may not hit 100 degrees. The latest model runs are calling for upper 90s. However there is enough heat to possibly squeeze out that triple digit mark for a few minutes.
