July 11th: NW Mesa Station Data Error

Posted on Jul-11-2017 at 17:49:00

There was an error in the rainfall value for the station located in Northwest Mesa this morning. It registered a total of 1.35 inches for the day (with 1.26 inches of that supposedly falling around 4 am). This total was obviously an error, so the rainfall total has been corrected.

The actual rainfall totals are as follows:
Yesterday (July 10th): 0.24"
Today (July 11th): 0.09"
24-hr rain total: 0.33"

This puts the yearly total at 2.85".

Will continue to monitor the rain gauge to see if these anomalies carry on as the cause of the error has yet to be determined.
