The moisture that moved in from the South helped out the Southwest this past weekend. We saw heavy rains and a rise in our humidity levels which helped get those fires under control. Some areas saw record daily rainfall including Durango, CO who saw half an inch of rain during the day on Sunday. It was the most daily precipitation since early 2017! Tucson, AZ beat its old rainfall record from 2012, Saturday! Fires continued to grow over the weekend, but containment is much higher. Most of the fires are above 70% contained! The Trail Mountain Fire and 416 fire are also seeing better containment than last week.   For WeatherNation -Meteorologist Shelly Lindblade
