PHOENIX -- It was a rather rainy weekend in many parts of Arizona. Flash flooding occurred in many locations as we saw thunderstorms which produced a lot of rain and did not moving very fast.
At Sky Harbor Airport, where the official weather stats for Phoenix are kept, .19 of an inch of rain fell this weekend while many areas were up over one inch.
Officially, we've had .96 of an inch of rain so far in Monsoon 2012.
A year ago, we’d already gotten 1.41 inches of rain by this date. Last year, the monsoon spigot promptly turned off in August and September. We only received about .2 of an inch of rain to finish out a dismal monsoon.
So, even though some areas have gotten a bunch of rain, most areas have not and we continue to see rainfall values around metro Phoenix below average.
