PHOENIX — A storm rolled through metro Phoenix Saturday night, bringing rain and wind across the Valley.

A majority of the rain occurred in the East Valley with parts of Chandler seeing up to 0.16 inches, while Gilbert got 0.12 inches and Mesa received 0.08 inches, according to Maricopa County Flood Control District rain gauges.

Sky Harbor Airport and most of the West Valley recorded 0.04 inches.

The rainfall brings the Valley’s official total so far this month to 0.15 inches, well short of the average of 0.79 inches and last year’s total of 0.91 inches, according to the National Weather Service.

The storm also brought high wind speeds to parts of metro Phoenix, with some areas receiving upwards of 30-40 mph wind gusts. Sky Harbor Airport also recorded a 46 mph wind gust just before 10 p.m., according to NWS.

No more rain is projected for the remainder of the week with sunny skies and highs in the upper 60’s to low 70’s forecasted.
