Graph shows it has been a pretty steady rain for about 14 hours and is now tapering off.

Can confirm firsthand. Started raining on us on the ridge on Goat Mountain at 12am and didn't stop all day. Hardly any visibility. Drove to the basin and couldn't see Casa Grande from the store (or even the cabins at points). Finally threw in the towel and went to Alpine for the night. Hoping to start the Chisos tomorrow with dry gear.
Lots of water in all the washes and I'm sure every spring is flowing.
