TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Tropical moisture from Roslyn brought strong thunderstorms to Tucson on Wednesday afternoon, Sept. 28.

Roslyn is a former tropical storm in the eastern Pacific.

The storms brought high winds, heavy rain and lightning to much of the Tucson area.

Streets downtown were quickly full of runoff that overwhelmed the drainage system.

A tree was blown down near West St. Mary's Road and North Grande Avenue.

Chief Meteorologist Kevin Jeanes says the stormy weather will continue into the evening. You can find his latest forecast on KOLD News 13 or online HERE.
