Event Narrative Scattered thunderstorms developed during the afternoon hours across portions of southern Gila County on August 21st, and they affected the communities of Globe and Miami. Due to the very moist and unstable nature of the atmosphere, the storms were able to generate locally heavy rain with rainfall rates in excess of 2 inches per hour. Heavy rain in the Globe/Miami area led to the issuance of a Small Stream Flood Advisory at 418 pm, and the advisory continued until 615 pm. At 605 pm, a trained weather spotter 4 miles west of Miami measured 1.22 inches of rain in a strong thunderstorm. The heavy rain led to flooding of roads and washes in the area around Miami.
