The airport picked up another .13″ of rain after midnight bringing the storm total to .58″. Yesterday’s .45″ missed the record of .47″ by just .02″! With .59″ for the year we are officially 1.26″ below average since January 1st. However, we are just .60″ below average since October 1st. Here are some storm totals from around Tucson as reported this morning by RainLog.org:
The storm is gone but the memory of nearly constant light to moderate rain over three days lingers. Pretty much 1″ – 3″ rain totals across the Tucson area with most folks getting around 2″ give or take. Thanx to RainLog.org for the info. Here are the epic storm totals:
Pretty much everyone got some rain. The east side wins big with a quarter to a half inch falling. Here are the numbers from RainLog.org

A storm developed just south southeast of the city around 11am and moved right on through getting stronger as it went. Here are the rainfall amounts courtesy of RainLog.org.
