Monsoon Midterm Report

Today marks the exact mid-point of the monsoon- as defined by its calendar start and stop dates.

With a lull in monsoon storms today, it’s a perfect time to assess how areas in Southern Arizona stand when it comes to summer rain.

With the exception of the Tucson International Airport, all reporting cities and towns have recorded above average rainfall.

Tucson is less than 0.10″ below average while places like Douglas have received over 13.00″ of rain since the start of the monsoon.

In fact, Douglas has seen the second wettest monsoon ever; with half of the season still remaining.

The monsoon should shutdown for the rest of the week with slight storm chances returning later in the weekend.

Meanwhile, the drier air will warm up more efficiently as temperatures begin to climb back into the upper 90s to near 100.
