A look at today's rainfall totals

TUCSON - Monsoon showers and thunderstorms return to the region dumping some pretty impressive rainfall.

Severe thunderstorms returned to Tucson just in time to start the weekend, according to Meteorologist John Patrick. With the storms came heavy flooding rains and strong damaging winds. The heaviest rainfall totals were on the east side of the metro with radar estimates well above an inch in some localized areas. However, the official total from Tucson International only reads 0.05" as of 7:00pm Saturday evening. Thats still enough to bring our Monsoon rain total to 4.46" from June 15 through today, over twice where we should be. Enough moisture is in place to keep a chance of showers and isolated storms around throughout your overnight hours.
