The Dove Mountain area north of Tucson was socked with about 2 inches of rain Monday afternoon — resulting in a flash-flood warning, the National Weather Service reported.

"It was a lot of rain, absolutely," said J.J. Brost, a meteorologist with the Weather Service. "It was a heavy, slow-moving storm that produced quite a bit of rain from 2 o'clock to 3:30. Right around the Dove Mountain area, it was about 2 inches."

Brost said a flash-flood warning for the area was to expire at 4:15 p.m. Monday.

Heavy rain also fell over parts of central Tucson — "maybe up to an inch or so," Brost said, noting that other parts of the metro area received lighter rain.

"Things could wind down during the evening and then do it again tomorrow," he said. "We're looking at a 60 percent chance of rain for the Tucson area Tuesday."
