Monsoon magic cools and wets southern Arizona

TUCSON -- The monsoon season started for real today with nice rain falling right now.

The summer rains are little early this year, which is great considering the vicious heat wave we've been having. Monsoon storms in the Sonoran Desert and Sky Islands around Tucson usually start around July 3.
