Here's where you'll find answers to your questions about the lowest temperatures and coldest days in Tucson, Arizona. For instance: When was the last time Tucson got colder than 20 °F? How cold did Tucson get in 2019?

This page gives the lowest temperature for each year in Tucson and the date that it happened. A date with a plus sign beside it means the lowest temperature also occurred on at least one other day earlier that year.

These records go back to 1899, with a few years missing data. The lowest temperature measured during that time was 6 degrees Fahrenheit (-14 Celsius) on January 7, 1913.
