What a day of rain around the Valley and the state! And we are not done yet.  

A record-breaker day the National Weather Service says that the storm set a new daily rainfall record for rain at Phoenix Sky Harbor of 1.03" (as of 3:30 pm) The old record of 0.45" was set in 1913.

Flash Flood Watches are in effect for Maricopa, Gila, Pinal and Graham counties until 11 p.m. tonight.

This means conditions are favorable for the development of flash flooding. Never drive through flooded roads.

[RAINFALL TOTALS]

For the rest of the night, the low pressure system in southern California will begin to track through Arizona, that's when instability will develop and thunderstorms will fire off.

These thunderstorms should be isolated, but will be capable of producing brief heavy downpours, localized flooding, small hail and strong winds.

The rain should end in the Valley by around midnight tonight. But pick up again tomorrow morning with a scattered shower or too. 

Some areas could also wake up to patchy fog tomorrow morning, followed by partly to mostly sunny skies.

Up in the high country tonight rain showers turning into snow showers. With snow levels starting at 8000 feet and dropping by tomorrow morning, to about 6000 feet. We're looking at snowfall totals of 1" to 3" above 6000 feet.

This storm should be completely out of Arizona by Sunday evening, but we will see clearing from west to east late tonight through the day Sunday.

Next week, conditions dry out and warm up.
