Last day of July. Gonna be sad to see it go. Such an amazing ride! We picked up another .01″ of rain at the airport yesterday so now the monthly record rainfall for July sits at 6.80″! Remarkable. Will we add to it today? Maybe. Lots of sunshine and moisture may lead to a storm or two popping up this afternoon. The better chance will be after 5:00 when a disturbance rides out of Mexico and heads our way. If this pans out our bast chance for storms will be this evening and tonight. Scattered storms possible tomorrow to start August out right. Then conditions for storms become more favorable Wednesday. Daily scattered storms possible the rest of the week through the weekend. Viva Monsoon 2017!
Mostly sunny today with a chance for an afternoon storm or two, hopefully near you, and a high in the upper 90s.
Mostly cloudy tonight with scattered storms and a low in the upper 70s.
Scattered storms possible tomorrow upper 90s. Better chance of storms Wednesday with a high in the low 90s. Chance of storms through Sunday with highs in the mid 90s.
6.80″ is the most rain to ever fall in the month of July
Wow! .87″ of rain yesterday at the airport. July and Monsoon total now at 6.79″! That is a record for July rainfall and surpasses our average total Monsoon rainfall of 6.08″. Remarkable and we ain’t done yet! An inverted trough is over the area today with disturbances riding through as well. Tons of moisture in the air. All that to say there is a good chance of storms today and tonight with locally heavy rainfall possible. Scattered storms remain in the forecast until further notice. Enjoy!
Partly sunny today with a good chance for storms and a high near 90.
Mostly cloudy tonight with scattered storms and a low near 74.
Partly sunny tomorrow with scattered storms and a high in the mid 90s. Scattered storms through Saturday with highs in the mid 90s.
6.79″ is .55″ inches more than the previous wettest July set in 1921.
Amazing! The airport picked up an inch and a third of rain yesterday. We are now officially just barely shy of six inches of rain for July and Monsoon 2017. The average for Monsoon is just above six inches. We are basically there in one month! Not everyone has had six inches of rain so far. A few have had more and more have had less. Still, all in all we are enjoying a nice soaking this month. Looks like more of the same with an inverted trough (basically a low moving west instead of east) nosing into southern Arizona today giving us a decent chance at more activity today and tonight. Scattered storms continue into next week. Viva Monsoon!!!
Becoming partly sunny today with scattered afternoon and evening storms and a high near 90.
Mostly cloudy tonight with scattered storms and a low in the mid 70s.
Scattered storms through Friday with highs in the low to mid 90s. Upper 90s Friday.
It’s Friiiiidaaay! Nice gentle light rain overnight after hitting 100 yesterday for the first time since July 15th. We’ll start another streak of sub century days today as storm chances increase this weekend. Some of the rains this weekend could be heavy! Scattered storm chances remain through much of next week although we may dry out some by the end of the week. Viva Monsoon 2017!
Partly sunny today with scattered afternoon and evening storms and a high near 94.
Mostly cloudy tonight with scattered storms and a low near 76.
Good chance for storms Saturday, some with heavy rainfall possible, and a high near 90. Scattered storms Sunday through Thursday with highs in the low to mid 90s.
Another down day for storms yesterday although some mountain locations got wet. High pressure will remain in the vicinity of northern New Mexico to the Texas panhandle into next week which should continue to increase our moisture from the south and southeast. That means the return of scattered storms as early as late this afternoon into tonight and continuing into next week. As the moisture increases we’ll see the threat of locally heavy rain come back into the picture. If today’s forecast high comes true it will be the first 100 degree day since July 15th. If we don’t make it, like we didn’t yesterday, then our “cool” streak will continue! Our average high for this time of year is 98. Viva Monsoon 2017!
Mostly sunny today with a slight chance of a storm near you and a high near 100.

Scattered afternoon and evening storms continue into next week with highs in the mid to low 90s. Upper 90s Tuesday and Wednesday.
