Active storm pattern into Labor Day weekend

TUCSON - Thursday brings heavy rain makers to some parts of Southern Arizona.

Abundant moisture combined with an upper level disturbance brought some impressive rainfall totals to some parts of the region today. The hardest hit was Cochise County where storms were capable of producing 1-2" of rain per hour. Even parts of Tucson's far west side saw some heavy rain with street flooding reported along Sandario Road.

An active monsoon pattern sets up again for Friday and Saturday with heavy flooding rain being the biggest concern. Drier air moves in for the second half of your Labor Day weekend turning storms more isolated. Daytime highs hover near normal in the mid to upper 90s through the holiday weekend.
