(Updated 7 p.m.) Most of the 1,600 customers of Tucson Electric Power who were without electricity this afternoon after severe thunderstorms moved through the area have their lights back on.

According to TEP, about 80 customers are still without electricity on the northwest side.

The storms for the most part missed the central part of Tucson, hitting mainly south of the city, the southeast side and the northwest side. Heavy rain was reported by the National Weather Service west of Tucson.

Heavy rain also fell in the Catalina Mountains. Nearly 1½ inches of rain was recorded near the Palisades Ranger Station on the Catalina Highway, according to the Pima County Regional Flood Control District. About a half-inch fell in SaddleBrooke north of Tucson and Oro Valley saw up to a half-inch of rain in some places. Nearly one inch of rain was recorded near Tubac, south of Tucson, the district's map shows.

The official rain gauge at the Tucson airport recorded no rain Friday.
