Tucson deluge rainfall record with 1.86 inches

By SEALE DOSS

Steady rain yesterday brought Tucson its heaviest October downpour in weather bureau history – a nearly two-inch downpour that grounded cars, grounded planes and broken phones at the peak of rain two days in the middle of the afternoon.

Most of the streets on the north side were flooded. The usually dry Rillito Creek and Santa Cruz Rover turned into roaring torrents.

And the meteorologist who had predicted a clear sky, spent the afternoon blushing.

A storm front coming from Mexico, the “blind spot” of the US Weather Bureau, was the cause. Despite the fact that yesterday’s 1.86 inches of rain was a record for the entire month of October, it’s not over yet. The prediction for today: more showers.

Weather bureau officials traced back to July 24, 1948 to find a 24-hour period that brought so much rain. On that date, a total of 1.87 inches of rain fell.
