The final flood advisory for Central Pima county has expired leaving all of Southern Arizona advisory/watch/warning free for the first time in a long time.
So now that I have some down time let’s discuss monsoon 2013 and where we stand.
There are plenty of superlatives we can claim already.
Douglas, for example, has received over 8.00″ of rain during the first two weeks of July.
It is now the all-time wettest month for Douglas – and we are only halfway through. Portions of Cochise and Santa Cruz Counties have literally been washed away in the past two weeks.
As you can see, Hereford and Douglas really stand out while the remainder of the region is near average for rain.
One thing I find curious is that TIA, too, is above its rain average – while many ‘midtowners’ have noticed the lack of a good soaker.
So often is the case that, TIA (where rain records for Tucson are officially kept) seems to receive much less rain than other portions of Tucson.
Perhaps this is just a misnomer, but we can accurately claim that as of today, Tucson is above average for monsoon rain.
Okay, just when you thought it was safe to work on the blog a new flood advisory pops-up.
I’ll see you soon!
