A bolt hits in the Santa Rita Mountains southeast of Tucson as monsoon storms surround the valley on August 7, 2018.

If you enjoyed the monsoon weather Friday, there could be more for the Tucson area heading into Saturday evening.

The National Weather Service in Tucson gave a 30 percent chance for storms to arrive in their most recent weather model.

This comes after Friday's rain where parts of the city received brief but heavy rainfall in the evening.

Although rain and thunderstorms are expected, officials believe it wont have the same coverage like Friday's storms.
