It's monsoon season in the desert and after two months of relentless heat, highs above 110-115° every day, the highest recorded on my Tesla outdoor temperature bug being 122° last Thursday, all indications are that change is coming.
What is a monsoon in simple terms?
The Short Answer: A monsoon is a shift in winds that often causes a very rainy season or a very dry season. Although monsoons are usually associated with parts of Asia, they can happen in many tropical and subtropical regions - including several locations in the United States.
There's lots to talk about with an active period (burst) to the Monsoon over the weekend and into early next week along with a welcomed downtrend in temperatures.
Sunday Maricopa Update
Daytime temperatures will quickly climb into the 113° F-116° F range around the Valley. Variable winds will hover in the 5-10mph range with localized gustier conditions into this evening due to any storm outflows. We expect plenty of storm activity across the Mogollon Rim and southern AZ later today. Some of this activity will try and move west/north into portions of the lower deserts in and around the County (simllar to the last few days). Any stronger storms will be capable of strong outflow winds, blowing dust, and brief heavy downpours. Conditions will be monitored for the rest of the day,
