Monsoon starts Sunday, June 15th

Posted: Updated:

Monsoon 2014 is here and it may not seem like it but it is starting off normal.

Our first week of the monsoon will be dry with a slight chance of seeing some rain around Douglas/Bisbee a couple nights through the week.

This is very typical for the first week or two to be dry in Arizona as we typically do not see the rains until early July.

Monsoon runs from June 15th all the way until September 30th. The rain usually falls in Tucson from early July through early September.

    August marks the last month of summer when looking at the seasons through weather. September first marks the start of Autumn (meteorological terms), even though the Fall Equinox is not until September 22nd, the first day of Autumn. So how did this year's summer fair when looking at the normal conditions?

    Monsoon storms are spotty with a half inch of rain falling in one location, and a mile away - nothing. Recording rainfall at one location just doesn't make sense.
