Phoenix sets new daily rainfall record

PHOENIX -- A new record for rainfall on Nov. 22 in Phoenix was set Friday, the National Weather Service said.

As of 4 p.m. Friday, Phoenix had received 1.22 inches of rain. The previous record for Nov. 22 was set in 1973, when a half-inch of rain fell.

The NWS said the record total is likely to rise as the Valley continued to receive rain.

Prior to Friday, the Phoenix Sky Harbor airport rain gauge hadn't measured any rain since Sept. 9. Rain began falling in the Valley Thursday night.

Thursday, Yuma broke a 129-year-old single-day mark with more than a third of an inch.

Northern Arizona was hit with snow Friday. Areas of Flagstaff reported receiving between one and four inches.
