TUCSON - After a 24 hour period of little storm development, Mother Nature looks ripe for a loud Saturday.
According to News 4 Meteorologist Jeff Beamish, scattered thunderstorms will develop this afternoon and evening. This is thanks in part to a re-energized atmosphere, ample moisture & a mid-level disturbance approaching from the south.
Initial storm development today will be south of the Tucson metro, across Santa Cruz and Cochise Counties. Activity should shift northward as the day progresses.
Storms may produce gusty winds over 40 mph and rainfall over one inch. Flash flooding will be a primary concern, especially in places that saw substantial rainfall from Thursday's storms.
Expect thunderstorms to taper off after midnight.
Stay with News 4 Tucson & KVOA.com for the latest weather developments through the day. Jeff will have a complete look at your Monsoon forecast tonight on News 4 at 5:30 and 10.
