Episode Narrative Scattered thunderstorms developed across portions of central Gila county, including areas between Lake Roosevelt and Globe, during the afternoon hours on August 31st. Due to the very moist and unstable nature of the atmosphere, the storms generated both locally heavy rainfall and gusty, damaging microburst winds. The heavy rain produced flooding of small streams and washes, and prompted the issuance of Small Stream Flood Advisories for central Gila county.
Event Narrative Scattered thunderstorms developed across central Gila county during the afternoon hours on August 31st. Due to the very humid nature of the atmosphere, the storms generated very heavy rain with peak rain rates well in excess of one inch per hour. A trained weather spotter located 7 mile southeast of Tonto National Monument measured 0.69 inches of rain between 3 pm and 325 pm. Gusty winds up to 50 mph accompanied the heavy rain. The heavy rain led to ponding of water on streets and other low lying areas; the spotter reported that water 2 inches deep covered his yard. The heavy rain also prompted the issuance of a Small Stream Flood Advisory for central Gila county which was in effect through 515 pm.
