Storms Move In To Southern Arizona

September 02, 2013

Santa Cruz and Cochise Counties have seen some heavy thunderstorms this morning that have left some parts of the area with flash flood warnings. But National Weather Service meteorologist Chris Rasmussan says this type of storm is common for this time of year.

“This time of year, it really doesn’t take much,” Rasmussan said. “We have plenty of moisture across the area and all you have to do is just throw in that extra ingredient of heating to get showers and thunderstorms.”

Still, people in the area should exercise caution. Rasmussan says big, stronger storms are moving in from the east starting tomorrow.
