Area south of Tucson received 2 inches of rain yesterday, more rain expected today

  • Updated

A monsoon rain cell drops somewhere in Tucson, as seen from near 36th Street and Kino Parkway on July 5, 2018.

Many areas in Pima County received heavy amounts of rainfall yesterday, with an area northwest of Benson receiving more than two inches, the National Weather Service says

Tucson wasn't as lucky, but nearly an inch of rain was reported at the Tucson International Airport yesterday.

If you're hoping for even more rain today, thunderstorm chances in the Tucson area are expected to be higher today than they were earlier in the week. Actually, the metropolitan area has already received rain this morning.

And as much as we love rain in Tucson, it's important to remember to stay safe during storms, especially in the event of flash floods or lightning strikes

On a separate note, temperatures are expected to stay under 100 degrees for the remainder of the work week. Yay!

High: 93

Low: 74
