Tucson, 28 July 2007

A discussion that goes along with these images can be found on the MadWeather Blog

A storm with heavy rain and wet macroburst hit the house around 1:30 pm. An intense storm with another wet macroburst had moved off the Catalinas off to the east of house around 12:30 pm.

The storm that came across here had a spectacular wall cloud -  photos attached below. Weak rotation was apparent. During the height of event winds were very strong from north - probably 50 to 60 mph but visibility was essentially zero. Lots of sirens a bit after event.

Rainfall from 12:50 pm to 2:00 pm was 1.35" unfortunately lots got into casita where my books are - but luckily just lots of mopping up - and half of our landscape gravel from front yard is out in the street.
