Had a tornado warning for my area a couple of hours ago. A first for me in Az. Just had a regular thunderstorm with lightning and rain.

@RedRoxx44 I hope it didn't get any worse. Based on the time, I figure the danger must have passed by now.

As I recall, a "tiny" one touched down out in Apache Junction in... '86? Kinda had me worried as I had just moved to Mesa from the Gila Valley.

@garyc57
These are probably the most notable tornadoes I've heard of in Arizona. Bellemont, Oct. 2010. They are not the only ones that have caused damage. But I don't feel like doing a big old Google search.

Who remembers last Septembers smoke choked skies and 110 degrees( at least in Phoenix)? Well, it's back. At least it isn't as horrible.

Seems this persistent brown haze that has been around the last few days is smoke, confirmed to me in satellite images, the deep red sunset last night, and the brown layer in the sky as it was setting. I think it is from California and the northwest, but I can't tell 100%. It appears to be wrapping around the large high that has set up over us, and circulated well around the western half of the continent, before getting back to Arizona. So it goes with the early death to the Monsoon.

It isn't humidity, though. The dew point outside is only 52, with a temperature of 74 where I am. Not bad.
