From the Yuma Pioneer:

Yuma itself has mostly experienced relatively gentle rainfall, though it did come down hard and heavy late Sunday afternoon when Yuma officially received .55 of an inch. Once again, the real “gully-washers” occurred elsewhere, such as the Wiggins area reportedly receiving 6 inches of rain Sunday. Total rainfall in Yuma was up to 3.47 inches after Monday’s light rain, according to the official weather station at the W-Y Combined Communications Center. The most that has come down in any one day was 1.10 inches on June 2, when it rained most of the day. Yuma now has received 5.84 inches of precipitation since May 1, most of that falling since May 21, which marked the beginning of a prolonged wet, cool and cloudy period that lasted more than three weeks…

Total precipitation in Yuma now is up to 8.83 inches to date in 2009.
