Rain was heavy especially on the South & Northwest sides of town today.

The intersection of Country Club & Ajo picked up 1.81″ of rain, and a rain gauge in Oro Valley received 2.05″.

The monsoon is going into a low-grade pattern as we head into the weekend while high pressure sets-up shop overhead.

Dry air in July means hotter temperatures and triple digits are back in the forecast for the next several days.

Monsoon 2013 will take a little break, and perhaps this is welcome news for residents of Cochise County.

Here’s a staggering statistic to consider: 9.67″ of rain has fallen in Douglas during the month of July.

Enjoy your weekend and remember to stay hydrated as we return to ‘summer’
