Tuesday's rainfall totals

Posted: Updated:
What a start to this years monsoon! So far rain has developed everyday since last Thursday and more is anticipated as we head into the weekend. Tuesday's rains were fairly heavy and widespread in southern Arizona and because of this we saw quite a bit of flooding around the storms. The west side of Tucson was hit hard yesterday around 6pm and the National Weather Serviced issued a Flash Flood Warning due to the slow moving thunderstorms. We also had Flash Flood Warnings issued south of Tucson and throughout all of northern Arizona. Along with the flooding lightning was excessive and winds were strong around and in thunderstorms.


Rainfall totals from yesterday and last night racked up to be the wettest monsoon storm so far in Tucson this year. And so far the monsoon (2014) has brought .67" of rain to Tucson. This is more than the rest of the year has brought to the airport. So within five days we have more than doubled our yearly rainfall.

    With more than half of the monsoon past and only about a month left of rainfall, we still need some beneficial monsoon storms to dump Tucson with rain. Here is a check on rainfall so far and how far we are below average.

    Monsoon storms are spotty with a half inch of rain falling in one location, and a mile away - nothing. Recording rainfall at one location just doesn't make sense.
