Arizona Tornado Watch Update: Severe Storms On The Move, Developing Stronger This Afternoon through Evening


This morning at 7:00am Arizona Weather Force activated the official Tornado Watch product, a rare but not unheard of product.  Severe Storms have moved through the Western Arizona regions of the watch area, but indications are the storms will get stronger in and around the watch zone so read on for details …

The tornado watch centers Yavapai County southward to Maricopa County and up through Flagstaff.  Storms are expected to continue to strengthen as strong instability has developed over the region.  The watch ends just north of Phoenix at the Southern end, but it looks as if I will need to extend it to Downtown with the activity later on, which will cover the entire valley area from west to east.  Storms already are showing signs of rotation and this will continue to get stronger as we move through the 2PM hour, especially near the Central Yavapai zones.  Storms will continue to Flagstaff through the 5-6pm hour and finally exit the region after 11pm when the watch expires.

Storms today will continue to bring damaging winds and large hail, in addition to flooding, especially Northern Arizona.
