October 15, 2022

A slow moving low pressure system brought several rounds of showers and thunderstorms across portions of south-central and southwestern Arizona throughout the day on the 15th. Strong southerly flow out ahead of the low pressure system brought in highly anomalous moisture content across the southern half of Arizona, with PWATs surging to 1.1-1.4, which are near record values for mid-October. Along with the highly anomalous moisture values, moderate to high instability values were also present with MLCAPE rising to 1000-1500 J/KG. Bulk shear values between 25-35 kts were also present. The combination of the highly anomalous moisture content, instability, and shear along with the strong dynamic forcing to the east and north of the low pressure system was a recipe for these showers and thunderstorms to produce flash flooding as well as severe wind gusts and hail. The greatest flash flood impact occurred along portions of western Maricopa County in the area from Buckeye to Tonopah, The greatest damaging wind impact occurred in the Tonopah area, where two rounds of severe thunderstorms, one hour apart, impacted causing widespread power outages due to downed power poles, destroyed two mobile homes, damaged dairy farm structures, and resulted livestock losses. Severe hail was also reported with a storm that moved into the Mesa to Scottsdale area during the overnight period. ||As the area of low pressure moved eastward on the 16th, lingering moisture resulted in the development of more showers and thunderstorms, mainly concentrated across the higher terrain areas east of Phoenix. One isolated storm in particular developed on a open field near Sun Lakes, resulting in the development of a short-lived landspout during the mid-afternoon hours with no damages reported.

July 30, 2022

Daytime heating combined with divergence aloft associated with an easterly wave near the Arizona/New Mexico border promoted thunderstorm initiation across southeast Arizona during the afternoon of the 30th. Outflow boundaries generated from these thunderstorms raced northwest toward south-central Arizona, resulting in a dust storm in Pinal County where multiple instances of dense blowing dust less than 1/4 mile were reported. New thunderstorm development occurred along these boundaries with some thunderstorms becoming severe. Numerous instances of damaging winds were reported across the Phoenix area and down into northwest Pinal County, which included multiple downed trees and power poles. A very moist environment, with PWATs in excess of 1.80 allowed for thunderstorms to become efficient heavy rainfall producers. Rainfall amounts upwards of around 1.50 within an hour were reported during the event. There were multiple reports of flash flooding across northern parts of the Phoenix area, leading to several water rescues and making some roads impassable. Flash flooding also led to water and mud entering some apartments in north Phoenix causing extensive water damage. Isolated flash flooding occurred across Pinal, Gila, and Yuma Counties. No injuries were reported with this event.

July 17, 2022

Mid-level flow of 25-30 kts and divergence aloft combined with sufficient MLCAPE of greater than 1000 J/kg to result in an environment favorable for the development of organized severe thunderstorms. A cluster of thunderstorms developed across southeast Pinal County during the late afternoon hours and moved northwestward through the Phoenix Metro after dark while becoming severe in the process. One of the more significant damage areas was along SR-87 in Salt River Reservation Community, where a mobile home and trailer park were destroyed and large transmission lines were downed. Power was knocked out for some for more than 2 days. A large dust storm also impacted parts of Pinal County.

July 14, 2022

Adequate moisture and instability in place across south-central Arizona on the 14th allowed for thunderstorm development to occur across the high terrain areas of Arizona during the afternoon. Going through the evening hours, multiple outflow boundaries descended into the Valley triggering additional thunderstorm development in the lower deserts. Some of these thunderstorm became strong, including one thunderstorm that developed over the Queen Creek area, producing strong winds. As a result of the strong winds, multiple trees and power poles were knocked down in Queen Creek. No injuries were reported.

June 24, 2022

Outflow boundaries originating from distant thunderstorms converged on the valley floor during the evening hours. This combined with a pocket of upper-level divergence as analyzed by the SPC mesoanalysis resulted in the development of a strong thunderstorm over Chandler. Other weaker thunderstorms developed across the valley as well from the resulting outflow boundaries. A strong thunderstorm that developed near Morristown caused downed powerlines, resulting in the closure of US-60. No injuries were reported.

Power Outage FAQs

What is Power Outage?

Power outage (also called a power cut, a power blackout, power failure or a blackout) is a short-term or a long-term loss of the electric power to a particular area.

What Causes Power Outages?

  • Severe weather (high winds, lightning, winter storms, heat waves, rain or flooding can cause damage to power lines or equipment);
  • Other damage to electric transmission lines (vehicle accidents, trees, and animals can cause damage to power lines or equipment);
  • Repairing, maintenance or upgrades on power lines and equipment.

What are the Top Outage Safety Tips?

  • Stay away from the downed power lines, park vehicles in protected areas;
  • Unplug appliances and electronics, limit cell phone use to conserve battery life;
  • Use portable generators outdoors only, well away from open windows and doors;
  • Pack perishable foods into a cooler, keep refrigerator and freezer doors shut as much as possible.
