TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

After a weekend of record rainfall, another storm was on the verge Sunday night of hitting Southern Arizona.

The second storm will not break records, but it will be colder, First Alert Meteorologist Aaron Pickering said Sunday. Snow levels will fall to 7,000 feet Monday and 4,000 feet Monday night.

"This colder storm will bring in showers Monday," Pickering said, "but we will also be watching the snow levels. Most of us will just see rain showers Monday. After the rain wraps up, the cold air will set in.

"This cold air will bring us a near freezing night Monday night and likely freezing conditions Tuesday night," he said.

Pickering said there's a 30 percent chance of rain Monday. He said rain chances were highest before lunch time.

Tucson International Airport saw record rainfall for Saturday's date, Jan. 26, with .71 of an inch falling.

More than an inch drenched parts of Tucson and caused significant runoff. More than 50 people were trapped in Bear Canyon after streams swelled with floodwater Saturday afternoon.
