Re: Woodbury Fire - Superstition Wilderness

4.21" at the North Reavis TH
3.39" at Tortilla TH

Fish Creek -- otherwise untouched by fire -- might be destroyed by runoff from that kind of rainfall.

Yes, according to the HAZ map, it's rained somewhere between orange much and red much, surrounded by a lot of yellow much. :-k

Re: Woodbury Fire - Superstition Wilderness

@friendofThundergod Yes. A lot.

How the area recovers... if it starts to come back in a few years... rather than a few decades... will depend on what happens to the soil/ash.

Re: Woodbury Fire - Superstition Wilderness

Flash flood warning in the Superstitions. Today and tomorrow might cause more damage there than the entire month it was on fire.

Re: Mindless weather chit chat

The current run of weather models result in an 11.5% chance of no measurable rain in Phoenix from now through Wednesday next week. I'm starting to think that this percentage will increase.

Re: Mindless weather chit chat

Can we really count on widespread 1-2" rain totals from a forecast this far out, and as uncertain as tropical systems typically produce in Arizona? (I was hoping for more, but I think that historical tropical systems drop higher amounts of rain in pretty limited areas.) It will be interesting to see...

Kayaking on I-10 has historically been the result of the remnants of tropical systems moving into Arizona. Kayaking is fun.

Re: FR 300

@Alston_Neal I find it sad that the venerable Toyota brand--home of the very capable off-road Land Cruiser, FJ, Taco, and 4Runner--also creates the antithesis of those. But alas, Prius-rated is a universally-understood term. (Likely more for what it says about the driver than the vehicle itself, bu...

East-side (A-S) Rim Road has been graded and resurfaced in recent weeks (still ongoing between 115 and the CNF boundary). Mostly just graded with a new gravel top layer, but the section from near Promontory Point to west of the power lines, the roadbed has been excavated, and it has received the add...

Re: Mindless weather chit chat

Wasn't it supposed to rain the past couple of days?
Probably shifted over and hit Alabama instead.
