The latest winter storm put unusually similar amounts in rain gauges all around North Phoenix—about 6/10th of an inch—from New River to Anthem, Sonoran Foothills down to the Norterra area. Similarly, roughly 1/2-inch or more fell across much of the Valley.

The North Phoenix region is at or perhaps slightly above normal precipitation so far this year. Rainfall totals since Jan. 1, according to the Flood Control District of Maricopa County:

Historical average rainfall for Deer Valley Airport, where long-term official records are kept, run about 3.93 inches for three-month period of January through March, with more than 1 inch being normal in each month. Areas near the mountains typically get around 20 percent more, according to the state climatologist, though long-term records don’t exist.

A stiff wind with strong gusts is expected today as skies clear. There is no more rain in forecast through next Tuesday.
