Storms will begin to fire up in the mountains and will head southwestward like yesterday. Activity will begin to pick up during the early afternoon especially in the White Mountains and in Eastern Pima, Pinal and Santa Cruz County. Drier air will move into Cochise County this afternoon so it should be pretty quiet. The best chance for storms, if anything, will be in Western Cochise County!

A Flash Flood Watch will go into effect from 2 PM today until 11 PM Wednesday for all of Pima, Santa Cruz and Pinal County.
