A thunderstorm opened up on our neighborhood in Carlsbad yesterday afternoon dumping .46" of rainfall in 20 minutes. Storm total ended up being .48". Pea to dime size hail fell between 3:48 and 3:52 PM MDT. Pea size hail fell again for a few minutes and ended at 4:04 PM. MDT. This brings my September total to .50" and my YTD to 12.18".
A CoCoRaHS observer in Queen reported .50" and a FaceBook friend reported .90". A public report of .50" was noted in Cottonwood north of Artesia.
Who remembers doing this as a kid after a good rain? My wife came home from work and told me to go take a look in our alley. This little guy was having a blast zipping back and forth through the puddles in our alley.
(Radar Estimated 72-Hour Rainfall Totals).
As was expected 1" to 3" of rain has fallen in a few spots since Wednesday.
