Saturday's storms were pretty minimal, but there were a few Significant Weather Advisories issued:
As of 11:45am a line of thunderstorms were approaching the Phoenix Metro area with another developing storm system out Northwest of the area, just crossing into our warning area.Throughout the day a few more of these were issued, totalling 7 in all. The accumulated precipitation was only a trace in some areas, including Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport and up to 0.02 inches 4 miles out of the city of Maricopa. So while this wasn't a very big rain event, it was a lot of fun to see the storms moving and developing and falling apart on radar. I imagine there will be a lot more to see when we are in full swing of the Monsoon. Nothing like the severe weather out on the plains, but I'll take what I can get here in the desert!
