This is one of those storms that got away from the forecast. While we had anticipated the rain ending by the noon hour, that didn’t happen and we continued to see drizzle deep into the afternoon hours. And now, with skies expected to see some clearing tonight, we think that fog will be an issue on Wednesday morning. And it may be pretty widespread, potentially impacting flights at Sky Harbor Airport.
So far, it’s the airport that’s recorded one of the higher rainfall totals. Sky Harbor is at .17” of an inch of rain. That ended 24 days without any rain at the airport. Other rainfall totals of note include South Phoenix with .20 of an inch and Ahwatukee which is at .16 of an inch.
The drizzle will be tapering off and we’ll see the clouds decreasing in central Arizona. But tomorrow, with the chance for dense fog and this new, colder air mass, with be quite a cool day with highs struggling to get to 65 degrees.
The rest of the week should be quite nice with a ridge of high pressure building in. We should see highs back in the 70s by Friday afternoon.
