That’s a good thing this years monsoon is pretty disappointing, especially compared to last year. Last year rocked and rolled for three months, this year has been far less. Had a decent storm last night, but overall pretty calm.

Itís hit and miss all over. My part of Prescott has been great, friends down the road 20 minutes say theyíve been cheated. We certainly need it.

We had those strong thunderstorms from the south here yesterday. Satellite TV goes away while overhead. Dropped temps from 85 to 65

It’s dumping really good right now. Storms seem to be hitting later in the evening this year, last year was late afternoon.

For us this year has been two to three times heavier than last year monsoon wise. It's an oddity that there can be rain and stormy conditions here but even just a few miles over it's sunny and relatively clear.

My SIL has lived in SE AZ his whole life, he said last year’s monsoon was in the top two or three he’s ever seen and that this year is more of an average monsoon season.

As far as rainfall in the Tucson area goes, the three wettest monsoon seasons on record are 1955, 1964, 2021.

No serious flooding yet though?

I remember where they had a "100 year flood" that wiped out a bunch of bridges. A few years later, after they had rebuilt most of those bridges, BAM! another 100 year flood that wiped out those bridges again.

BTW, for you newbies, do NOT try to drive across the Pantano Wash when there's water in it.

We’ll be getting these same storms Wednesday and Thursday.
Won’t be as severe as AZ.
I remember the Salt River Flood.

The tropics are heating up.

I guess it depends on where you are situated. I live in SE AZ and this year we are getting walloped.

Last year the storms were all around me but we didnt get very wet. My tractor is working overtime this year. Wicked lightning, wind and power outages. 3 in the last week.

It's been a pretty good monsoon season here in the NorthWest corner - more rain this year than the previous 2 at least. But . . . . WEEDS!!

Yeah, not a fan of the weeds. The extremely fertile soil here is an unfortunate circumstance.

Neighbors house across the street took a direct lightning strike Tuesday afternoon. I saw the bolt, but not the direct strike. Wholly Molley was that thing huge and loud.

He has an whole-house surge protector at the panel that can pop the main breaker as a fail-safe. It did, but not before it popped half the breakers in the panel and smoked several cheap transformers around the house (Alarm Panel, Sprinkler Timer, etc)

The neighborhood lost cable internet for a couple hours from the strike too.

Having a home built right now in Goodyear. The electrician said he'd install a whole home protector after we close since it's cheaper.

Your post reminded me that they are important.

Those often don't help much unless they're designed to protect against lightning. The surge can come in through the ground reference and fry everything.

Our computer at work (people would call it a mainframe now) blew up so often from lightning that we had a regular lightning watch. One of us would go outside every 15 minutes to survey the weather. If we saw any lightning nearby, we would shut the computer down. One day it blew up anyway. The repair dude said it either came up through the ground reference or arced across the contacts in the on/off switch. From then on we also unplugged it from the wall.

Had a startling reminder today that although we're in Arizona in the summer, that rain is often really freakin' cold, since it was recently at very high altitude.

Living in NW AZ.
Previous 2 years thr monsoon was light to non-existent. This year we've had flood warnings daily for 2 weeks so far.
We live quite a ways from paved roads and 4x4 is about the only way in or out right now. Been 3-4 deaths so far with people trying to cross the washes at the wrong time.

What area do you live in?

This is my forth Monsoon season and the wettest so far. Love how everything is greening up.

Surprising how many people canít heed ďTurn around, donít drown.Ē

Parents home in Cave Creek lost about a 100sqft of roof in the storm 2wks ago. I replaced the decking and tarped it, but the roofers say they are busy until the 29th.
So far they've been fortunate the more recent storms have missed them.

Before Monsoon season hit, a couple of people said they heard it was going to be a "robust" Monsoon season. I ask what that meant and they weren't sure, but I think I understand now.

Had to turn around last Sat. We were heading north from interstate 10 going to check out Vulture City. About 3 miles from getting there the road was washed out and 2 vehicles were getting towed out of the mud. We were not in the Bronco so it was better to retreat.

Ugh, hate the greening up. The weeds/lawn in my yard grows about 2 inches per day when it's like this.

Good thing you weren't. It seems like 4wd are the most carried away by monsoon-driven flash floods. Don't eff with them.

It felt like 10x as much rain directly at our home last year compared to this year. We are currently at 9.56" for the year. I wish I had logged it, but I'll guesstimate maybe 36" at roughly the same time last year.

That will drive the doves south. We have a good population now in Antelope valley. Hope the storms stay east or south. 1 cold front will send them to South america.

Well, the hills and forest are ok, but not my yard in the middle of the DG. After last rear I made a mental note to put pre-emergent down, but I failed to do so. So yeah, plenty of weeds here too.

There is one place on earth that I know will always dump rain on me, no matter the time of year.

South Western New Mexico on interstate 10, just drove it twice in a span of 4 days dumped on me both times. When I went to a wedding in Texas not long ago, yup coming and going. When I know I have to drive through southern NM, the first thing I do is check my wiper blades. As it’s not a matter of if, it’s how long and how hard.

No, it's only August. Monsoons can still be pretty bad in September.

I'm bummed about my house being framed in Goodyear. I'm sure it's fine but wish the weather would give my lumber a break.
