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 over central Gila county during the afternoon hours, affecting areas between Lake Roosevelt and Globe. The very humid and unstable nature of the airmass allowed the stronger thunderstorms to produce both heavy rain and gusty, damaging microburst winds. At 3 pm, a trained weather spotter located 7 miles southeast of Tonto National Monument reported that a 40 by 20 foot roof of a shed was blown off by wind gusts estimated to be at least 60 knots. In addition, the strong winds twisted and destroyed a sturdy jungle gym playground set.
