Tucsonans change their weekend plans as storms move in

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

With heavy rainfall expected over the weekend around Tucson, some are making last minute changes to their plans.

The wash on the Northwest side near La Cholla and Overton was empty Friday night but could be full by Saturday. It's one of the first washes that fills up when the storms hit.

Now, some are scrambling to change their weekend plans.

"We planned on going swimming and it's not going to happen now," said J Fifield, a Tucson resident. "If it rains hard, I'd get in but I won't take [my daughter]."

"I just got into town and we're planning on going to Patagonia for Sunday afternoon to hang out and BBQ and get into the water," said Nick Walker, who is visiting Tucson, "but he just called me and said we're going to stay at the house because it's supposed to rain."
