According to Pima County Regional Flood Control Distric gauges, an area southwest of Tucson had 24-hour rain totals measuring 2 to 3 inches through 7 a.m. Friday.

The highest rainfall total was recorded at the Los Reales at Wade Road gauge, located just north of the Tohono O'Odham Nation's San Xavier District — 3.43 inches. A nearby gauge at Hwy. 86 just south of Tucson Mountain Park picked up 2.13 inches of rain. Another gauge located just west of Saguaro National Park West recorded 2.24 inches.

Unfortunately, Tucson International Airport — Tucson's official recording site — recorded just a trace of rain. In fact, the September rain total to date is also a trace.

Since Jan. 1, the airport has received 6.32 inches of precipitation, which is roughly two inches below normal. At this time last year, however, the airport reported 3.78 inches.
