Arizona Monsoon

Is Back This Week

Monsoon in AZ

Monsoon Meter for July 18, 2016

High Pressure Kept Monsoon Away

This is why I watch 12News out of Phoenix.  They are the only station with the Monsoon Meter!  This gives us a pretty good idea of what the weather is going to be like in the different climatic zones.  We live in Northern AZ and the weather is much different than other zones. The White Mountains and Southeast AZ (Tucson) usually get more rain during monsoon. But a Thunderhead does not discriminate where it drops the rain!

We Need Rain

Arizona residents generally agree that Monsoon is good for our state.  It brings much needed rain and helps to cool off the super hot temps.  Right now, Phoenix should be at over  1/2 inch at Sky Harbor Airport, but it is only .01 inches right now!  

Last year, in Sedona AZ, we have over 4 inches of rain in July. So far this year - NO RAIN at all in July.  

What The Monsoon Meter Numbers Mean

0-1 - Probably not going to see any rain

2-3 - Conditions are right for some rain to drop

4-5 - Likely to see some decent thunderstorms - Winds could pick up.

6-7 - You better bring your umbrella! Get stuff done early because by the afternoon you will see activity for sure! Certain areas may see flash flooding.

8-10 - Stay away from washes. Be aware that you are likely to see heavy rain.

Good morning Sheri,

We also could use rain here and it does not look like we will be getting the umbrella out.

Make yourself an astonishing day.

Wow this is Pinpoint weather.  This is what you need since your area is so different from the lower elevations.  Hope you are doing your rain dance so you can fill up those rain barrels.

Sheri- interesting post about monsoons.  Here in South Florida, we typically have summer afternoon showers.  And, they're scattered, so you don't know where they'll be.

The hot temps generate crazy weather and we have had some really crazy weather lately. Staying tuned to the weather can help but they don't always know.

Good morning Sheri.  Where you're at 4 inches of rain must seem to be like a monsoon.

That's a pretty handy dandy weather device. I had no clue what an Arizona monsoon was until I was in one!
