Cyclone: Hurricane Pauline
Date it affected AZ: October 3, 1968
Affected Arizona as...: Remnants (dissipated over eastern Sonora, Mexico)
 

Pauline's main affect was that she injected considerable moisture into Arizona ahead of a low pressure system moving across California and the Great Basin. The trailing cold front produced isolated severe thunderstorms from the Rim south across Phoenix and into southeast Arizona on both the 2nd and 3rd. A tornado damaged several homes in Glendale, AZ.
