Some Thunderstorms Around Southeast Arizona

Some thunderstorms developed this afternoon ahead of a weak short wave moving across southern Arizona. Composite radar above is from 5:10 pm MST. Graphic below shows 6-hour CG flash density for 6-hours ending at 6:50 pm. At bottom is the 00 UTC sounding plot for Tucson (TWC), showing that some high-based CAPE developed during the day. The storms have mostly occurred to the east and south of Tucson, but a few flashes did occur in eastern Pima County. More serious storm activity was occurring in eastern Colorado this afternoon.
