Arizona Weather Force has issued a Severe Thunderstorm Watch effective for the following zones:

Zones issued for:  All of Cochise County … All of Santa Cruz County …

Discussion:  A tropical wave rotating in from the ridge of high pressure over Texas will bring an upper-level disturbance through.  This disturbance will be moving through very quickly, with an east-southeast to west-northwest flow through the watch area.  In respect, large hail, damaging wind, isolated tornado, and flooding will all be possible today.

SUNDAY:  Strong thunderstorms are expected across the area as Tucson sits once again ground zero.

A Severe Thunderstorm Watch is issued as the final alert for the day, which will outline large hail, damaging winds, flooding, and/or tornado within the description itself.
