What a great start to the monsoon season! What a mess all over Flagstaff!

Rain, sleet and hail visited most of the areas around Flagstaff yesterday. My weather station recorded 1.58 inches after the sleet melted. Remarkable, the sleet is still lingering around town this morning. I have some in my front lawn.

The flooding and heavy precipitation made a mess all over town. The rain flooded many roads. The Daily Sun has a great picture of the Dairy Queen on Milton. The railroad underpass flooded.

One item stands out to me. Usually, it seems like they keep the rain gauge at the airport indoors so it doesn’t get wet. Yesterday, they logged 1.74 inches.

Hats off to the Climate Prediction Center on this one. They usually don’t do that well at forecasting for this time of year. They nailed it when they predicted above average precipitation for this week.
