Comments:
The morning started out partly sunny but quickly became cloudy around 9:00am. The first of several waves came into our area resulting in hail and moderate rainfall for a short period.

Along with the hail and rain came a sharp drop in temperature. If you notice the time on the daily high and low, they occurred within an hour and ninety minutes of each other! Below is the temperature graph showing the quick drop when the rain began.


A small amount of snow could be seen on the Superstition Mountains when the clouds cleared but it quickly melted.
