These are screen shots from the Pima County Flood Control District. Rainfall amounts reflect the last 24 hours. LOTS of rain in the Rincons, Down around GreenValley, in SW Tucson and in the Foothills. It’s fun aas long as no one gets hurt!
Rain and lots of it. Flooding along the Tanque Verde Wash. A water rescue on Velencia on the SW side of town where power was knocked out for a time and heavy heavy rain fell. This time the center of the city picked up some good amounts. The airport too and we are now above normal for the month and up 2 inches for the year!
Heavy rain invades Tucson.
After the nice storms at 1am this morning it’s been kind of a quiet day. Storms are finally starting to form/move in with new thunder over Oro Valley. Here’s the scene off the deck. Imagine some rolling thunder in the background and Eureka on the SyFy Channel.
Sorry this is late. I went hiking this morning. Saw a deer on Linda Vista Trail! Nice morning after the rain.
In this morning’s Coffee and a Forecast I go over some rainfall amounts from overnight. Also look at the low pressure system that is interacting with the copious moisture and even some heating to bring another active Monsoon day in the Tucson area! Tonight and tomorrow too.
Not only did it rain in the early morning hours this morning, it woke me up! Now I’m gonna need a nap for sure.
The good news is, it rained! Here are some rainfall amounts from the National Weather Service:

Mike recaps the weather from earlier today and talks about our prospects for more storms with heavy rain tonight and especially tomorrow and tomorrow night as a low heads our way from the east.
Rain is likely today and tomorrow with heavy rain possible. All after a Sunrise that was sung by angels!
