Arizona Weather Force has issued a Thunderstorm Watch effective for a large area of Arizona, for the following areas;

All of the higher elevations of the rim zones, including Alpine, Show Low, Strawberry/Payson, I-17/Flagstaff-Sedona-Cottonwood-Camp Verde, and Prescott … Gila County … Apache and Navajo County … Northern parts of Maricopa County …

A cutoff low that has shifted directly west the watch zone will have strong instability and upper lift for the risk of thunderstorm development today.

These zones will have thunderstorms yet again tomorrow, Monday, March 18, 2024

A Thunderstorm Watch means that thunderstorms are expected in or around the watch zone, which can have a hail, wind, funnel cloud/tornado, and heavy rain risk.
