Heavy rain moves through Tonopah

Record rainfall for the date was reported at the Tonopah Airport on Tuesday, as a storm moved through the region, the National Weather Service reported.

A reported 0.26 inches fell, which breaks a record of 0.14 inches set in 2010.

“Now, some locations likely received quite a bit more from this thunderstorm complex that passed through, resulting in flash flooding,” the weather service said in a Facebook post early Wednesday.

“This raises the monthly total to 0.35 inches, and (we’re) not even halfway through the month,” the statement added.

A chance of storms remained in the Tonopah forecast for the next several days.
