It’s hard to believe that tomorrow is the first day of August, and Tucson’s largest school district is headed back to the classroom.
If we consider the monsoon a season defined by dates (June 15th – September 30th), then we are almost halfway through with our summer rainy season.
Most locations are way ahead of their average rainfall to date.
Some spots – especially in Cochise County – are breaking all-time records for the wettest month ever.
So how does August look?
According to the CPC (Climate Prediction Center), the odds favor a warmer and wetter month as compared to average.
So if these projections verify, I would say monsoon 2013 was a success if you were hoping for widespread rain.
