TUCSON - Thunderstorm activity is on the decline area wide compared to earlier action.
Thunderstorm activity started early this afternoon and its winding down early this evening. There are still a few thunderstorms firing up in the Santa Ritas and south of the International Border, however, as the sun starts to set they are expected to fizzle out.
It was another day without official rainfall at TIA but it wasn't a complete bust for some areas of Southern Arizona. A couple of strong thunderstorm cells worked through Marana and Avra Valley warranting a significant weather advisory this afternoon for possible small hail and strong wind gusts. Very few weather stations picked up on the rainfall across Pima and Pinal Counties but here is what we've recorded so far:
Picture Rocks Community Center: 0.59"
Keystone Peak: 0.24"
Santa Cruz River east of Sanders Rd: 0.08"
Mt. Lemmon: 0.04"
Florida Canyon: 0.04"
Las Guijas Mtns near Arivaca: 0.04"
Another chance to see isolated and scattered storms exists for the start of your work week. Drier air starts to filter in by mid week decreasing our storm chances and raising the temperatures near 110 as soon as Wednesday.
