Flash Flood Watch for Metro Tucson

Posted: Updated:

TUCSON - A Flash Flood Watch has been issued for southeastern Arizona until 2 AM Thursday.

This means that conditions are favorable for any storm to produce 1-2" rain in an hour or less. 

Areas along and east of an Oracle-Tucson-Nogales line stand a 60% chance of scattered storms today. According to 4WARN Meteorologist Jeff Beamish, the primetime for storms appears to be 1-7 PM. Much like Tuesday, storms will favor areas that see a substantial amount of sunshine during the late morning & early afternoon. 

Locally heavy rainfall and gusty winds over 40 MPH are the primary threats with today's storms.

Rain chances begin to decrease to wrap the work week, ranging from 30% on Thursday to only 20% Friday. Highs increase to the upper 90s and 100s Friday afternoon.

Scattered storms may resume this weekend and early next week. Models hint at Sunday as the most active day for the Monsoon this weekend, courtesy of a mid-level disturbance moving in.
