Yesterday"s Rain Event

Middle clouds drifting over the eastern Catalinas just before sunrise this morning.

Thunderstorms yesterday left a donut hole over metro Tucson - CG flashes above for 24-hours ending at midnight last night (from Atmo and Vaisala) - however, showers did move across the metro area. Rain began here a bit before 7:00 pm MST - heard no thunder and there's 0.16" in the gauge this morning. Rains ended before midnight generally over the metro area.  The airport reported 0.11"; DM had 0.08"; and Atmo received 0.16".

Reports here from ALERT (north above and south below) are for 24-hours ending at 6:30 am MST this morning. Heaviest amounts over both the north and south parts of the network. Second below is from MesoWest for same period for southeast Arizona. I noted that Amado and Sells had 1.15" and 1.221" respectively. Very good event for some parts of the area, but just enough to wet the ground, or nothing at all, for other locations.
