TUCSON - Round two of this weeks Monsoon action hits portions of Tucson.
Thunderstorms hit the east side of Tucson this afternoon with strong winds, heavy rain and even reports of some hail, according to Meteorologist John Patrick. Rainfall amounts for the east side were generally between 0.25"-0.50" but the official total at the airport was only a trace. So we won't be adding to our Monsoon totals for now but we are still 0.50" above where we should be for this time of year. Our yearly totals are up to 5.09" with over four inches of that falling in this month alone.
Enough moisture will hang around on Sunday to support more scattered storm activity possibly bringing round three to Tucson. Scattered storms are once again in the forecast for Monday until we start to dry out by mid week.
