Comments:
Since this rather strong low pressure system came into the state almost directly behind the storm system that effected the area on January 19th-20th, there was a lot of residual moisture to work with as this storm system moved through. This was a quite impressive storm system to say the least. This storm system left behind a decent amount of rain in the valley and at elevations at or above 3,000 feet a fair amount of snow accumulation was noted. As a matter of fact, in some part of North Phoenix, snow showers were reported but little to no accumulation. We rated this storm in the "Moderate" category due to the snowfall and cold conditions associated with this storm.

At our location the rain began around 10:35am, and we recorded the first 0.01in. of rainfall at 10:40am. A steady light to moderate rain continued until around 2:00pm, leaving us with a storm total of 0.24in.. The peak rain rate with this system was 0.35in./hr. which occurred at 10:53am.

Across Kings Ranch Road where Apacheland use to be located, Tony reported 0.65in. of rainfall between January 19th to January 21st at 1:00pm. In Tempe, A.M.Z. reported 0.04in. of rainfall. The rain gauge on Kings Ranch Road reported 0.20in. of rainfall. In Mountain Brook Village, JJ reported a rain total of 0.21in.. Thank you for your rain reports!
