Weekend storms wipe out Tucson rain deficit

Posted: Updated:

TUCSON - It took a while to get Monsoon 2017 going but it has certainly made its presence felt over the last week.

Record rainfall on Saturday night went a long way to catch Tucson up to its average rainfall amount through mid July. Tucson picked up 1.45" of rain on Saturday night, a new record for July 15th. The previous record was 1.12" set back in 1990. That was the most rain to fall at the airport in nearly two years.

The Monsoon 2017 total for Tucson is now up to 2.49" and that has brought the yearly total all the way up to 4.16", the exact mark for the average amount of rainfall through July 16th. 

How much rain do you think we'll see by the end of the monsoon? Let us know through News 4 Tucson's Monsoon Master contest and you could win a $700 prize pack. Enter here.
