Dust in Casa Grande, rain in Flagstaff, and hail in Heber... a day of wild weather in Arizona.

Just after 4 p.m., we heard of a dust storm south of the valley moving north, and hit the road.

According to the National Weather Service, strong thunderstorms near Tucson produced a gust front with blowing dust, which moved north towards Casa Grande, Gila Bend, Coolidge, Florence. It impacted visibility on Interstates 8 and 10.

Earlier Wednesday, a blowing dust advisory was ordered for Pinal and southwest Maricopa County, and a thunderstorm warning was ordered for Pinal County. Both advisories have since expired.

The past 7 days, we've had an average dewpoint of 55 degrees. But today, the dew point was 64 degrees. Raindrops fell near Picacho Peak, but it wasn't enough to drench things.

Meanwhile, Flagstaff was pounded with rain, and Heber, located in eastern Arizona, received 1-inch sized hail.

If you encounter blowing dust while driving, pull all the way off the roadway and put your vehicle in park. Turn all your lights off and keep your foot off the brake pedal.

    From the St. Louis spare to a rack of beef, ribs are the specialty for Chef Eddie Montalvo at Blue Smoke Restaurant in the Flat Iron District of Manhattan.

    Wineries flourish in Brooklyn

    Thursday, April 17 2014 10:34 PM EDT2014-04-18 02:34:04 GMT
    Hundreds of oak barrels of wine are all stacked in one room. You might think this is Napa, California. But it's not. It's the Brooklyn Winery, located in what was once an old pickle factory in Williamsburg. Refrigerated grapes are brought in from the North Fork of Long Island and from the Finger Lakes and then aged in barrels. These days urban wineries are becoming more popular, and they're popping up all over the borough.

    NYC to overhaul Superstorm Sandy rebuilding program

    Mayor Bill de Blasio unveiled a sweeping report Thursday that examined New York City's recovery progress from Superstorm Sandy and promised to reform a much-maligned program that was supposed to rebuild wrecked homes. Speaking to about 50 homeowners, officials and community leaders in a storm-battered Staten Island neighborhood, the mayor said the city is aiming to start rebuilding an ambitious 500 homes through its federally funded Build-It-Back program.
