An upper-level low digging into the Southwest will interact with moisture from the eastern Pacific and produce scattered storms with a risk of some storms being severe.

Severe Outlook

Scattered severe storms are possible today for areas like Tucson, Phoenix, and Yuma.  The storm chances will be all afternoon and into the evening hours.

Severe Risks

Small hail, up to an inch in diameter, and damaging winds will be possible within these storms. The good news is that there is no tornado potential today.

Forecast

The forecast shows that storms will start to pop up as we enter the afternoon and last well into the evening hours. We might even see some pockets of heavy rain linger into the early morning hours of Thursday.

Heavy Rain Potential

Up to 2 inches of rain is possible over the next 24 hours. The risk of flash flooding will be increasing throughout the day and this is why flash flood watches are in place. Use caution on the roads and turn around if you come across a flooded roadway. Keep checking with WeatherNation for more updates on today's severe weather chances for the Desert Southwest.
