    Warning us here in AZ, NV, and Southern CA of possible flooding, hazardous driving conditions, possible heavy rain, started warnings early in the week, called for the hurricane to hit Baja Mexico today. Radar has been poor, on and off, yesterday evening it clearly showed the hurricane and it's eye just off Baja; this morning nothing is there!

    200 miles south of us, Yuma has flooding today. About an hour ago, the dust started along with heavy wind, visibility about a block, not a drop of rain yet, but we're hoping! It has been a disappointing Monsoon season this summer as far as precipitation is concerned.

    Temperature outside has dropped 20 degrees!

    The weather service says landfall tomorrow... here is GFS rain forecast through Tuesday...

    I have forgotten the topography of Arizona, but I am guessing arid and very susceptible to serious flash flooding. Stay dry!!

    @Harry Havens
    Ha! Staying dry is just the opposite of our desire, here! Not a drop of precip. in over 8 weeks now. Arizona is quite large, ~ 114,000 sq. mi., so thus it has quite varied climate extremes. We live along the Colorado River, about central in the north-south direction, and expect ~ 5 inches of rain annually. Flagstaff, 180 mi. to the east, at 7,000 ft. altitude, receives 100+ inches of snow annually, and 23 inches of rainfall.

    My information was incorrect. My wife just said landfall for the hurricane is expected in Mexico tomorrow morning. Thus the prelude this afternoon up here, a heavy dust storm with high winds, may be followed by some REAL weather! Frank

    I'm in the West Valley of Phoenix. Had a sprinkle late this afternoon. Big drop in temps for next few days (mid 80s) with 80% chance of showers.
