Record rain hammers parts of Tucson

Posted: Updated:

TUCSON - As of late Monday evening 1.01" of rain had fallen at Tucson International Airport for the day. This breaks the old record of 0.74" which had stood since 1932.

According to Chief Meteorologist Matt Brode, much of Tucson did not receive a lot of rain with the exception of the airport - which is where records are kept. 

It was also the wettest day Tucson has seen since February 15th when 1.01" of rain also fell. If the airport picks up any more measurable rain before midnight, it will be the wettest day since last August when 1.48" was received. 

We're still early in the monsoon game but so far Tucson has picked up 2.05" thus far while 0.56" is average. This puts Tucson at 373% of average.
