Muggy, Muggy, Muggy

The humidity has really increased this week. We had 0.20" of rain this morning at 9am and then by noon, the sun was shining. That made for an extremely muggy afternoon. Showers and thunderstorms are forecast for the next two days and then a break from the humidity should occur by the weekend.

In other weather news today, strong storms just north of Tucson, Arizona created a large dust storm that moved through the Phoenix, Arizona area around 7:30 p.m. on Monday. Dust storms are common in Arizona, but this was larger than normal. I heard on the news this evening that visibilities were down to 30 ft in some parts of the area affected by the storm.
