TUCSON-Today may be the most active monsoon day since last Septemeber when the airport area in Tucson picked up 2.86" in one day making that the second wettest day in Tucson history.
We'll see showers and storms mainly south and east of Tucson for the first part of the day but the Tucson Metro should see some heavy dowmpours and lightning after 2 or 3pm.
Chief Meteorologist says the "risk" of flooding is real due to computer models showing 1-2" of rain across the areas the next 36 hours. You have to be on guard today for rapidly changing conditons today and tonight. Storms at night can be very dangerous simple due to the lack of vision and quickly rising waters in the area washes.
Meteorologist Jeff Beamish will have updates throughout the morning and at again at noon. We'll continue with hourly updates with Chief Meteorlogist Rob Guarino and Meteorologist John Patrick will cover the social networking side and text alerts.
