City of Tucson Mostly By-Passed By Event Last Night

Last night's event mostly fizzled for the City of Tucson and southward - above is map of ALERT rainfall through 7:00 am MST this morning. The Catalinas did very well, as well as west to north of the mountains., where there were reports of half to more than an inch. Rest of us were left out. Remember that ALERT doesn't record until amount reaches 0.04" and snow is not measured. Here at house we have 0.01" in the gauge, while TUS and DM each received only a Trace. Fairly significant bust for the models and forecasts across the City and southward.

Focus of event, as per the model forecasts, was northwest Arizona and Rim Country. Flagstaff had 1.19" with winds to around 50 mph, as well as thunder and snow. Map of detected CG flashes (below through 10 UTC this morning - from Atmo and Vaisala) illustrates the thunderstorm activity to our north, as well as a few flashes in central Pima County.
