Storm expected to bring rain to the Tucson area over the next 3 days

Rain is expected in the area as early as this afternoon, mainly affecting areas south and east of Tucson.

Heavy rainfall may hit Tucson late Thursday, into Friday. A Flash Flood Watch is currently in place for the Tucson area from 11 a.m. Thursday to 5 p.m. Friday. 

A Flood Watch goes into effect when "conditions are favorable for flooding," the National Weather Service says.

The storm is also expected to bring mountain snow late Thursday, into Friday. Snow levels are expected in areas with elevations above 7,000 feet on Thursday and 5,500 feet on Friday. 

Residents should also expect windy conditions and cooler temperatures through Thanksgiving Day and into the weekend. Today's low temperature at the Tucson International Airport was 41 degrees, which the weather service says is one degree below normal.

Today's low was the first below-normal daily low since Nov. 1, the service says.
