Rain, blowing dust hit Phoenix area on Tuesday night
PHOENIX — Rainfall and blowing dust made their way across the greater Phoenix area on Tuesday night after rain struck the Valley several times in July.
On the first day in August, upper northeast parts of the greater Phoenix area — near New River and Cave Creek — saw rain totals upwards of two-thirds of an inch in the mid-afternoon. But as of the end of the business day, Phoenix itself had not seen measurable rain.
There was, however, blowing dust.
In the evening, rain storms rolled in near Apache Junction and northwest Pinal County.
The National Weather Service tweeted that wind gusts in the southeastern part of the Valley could reach 30-40 miles per hour.
