Episode Narrative Very high precipitable water values combined with modest instability allowed storms to develop across much of the state on the 11th. Strong storms near and over the Wallow Fire burn scar triggered flash flooding downstream near the town of Luna. The Luna RAWS picked up over one inch of rain.
Event Narrative An unnamed arroyo feeding into the San Francisco River became flooded near the Luna Post Office. The water was at least four feet high and washed away the porch steps of a nearby mobile home. The headwaters of the arroyo are located northwest of town, within the Wallow Fire burn scar.
