"Monsoons are Upon Us in Arizona"

The Monsoon season here in Arizona can start as early as the Middle of June and can last as late as the 30th of September. Right now, one can feel the humidity gradually increasing each day. This is a sure sign that the beginning of our summer rains are ready to begin. Once here, our Monsoon rains can be torrential and very dangerous. Our washes can quickly become flooded and prevent risks to pedestrians and motorists alike as can be seen by one of the photos. At the same time, the monsoons are a life line to the water table here in Southern Arizona.
