Monsoons last day should be this coming Wednesday, NWS has a Pacific cold front swinging through Wednesday night. It will sweep out Rosa and the humidity and drop lows into the upper 60s (probably low 60s for the outskirts).

So this years monsoon spanned from July 8th to October 3rd (average dates are July 6th to September 23rd), so this years monsoon started 2 days late and will end 10 days late

It's all good news actually, as long as we're all careful and heed signs and barricades. Do not enter into ANY flooded areas.

Bring it, Rosa. Hurricanes usually shift into lower gears once they enter land, so a Category this or that normally becomes a tropical storm, then a tropical depression.

However, they will still bring their most excellent & wonderful rains with them. Enjoy, Arizona!
Totally agree! Tropical moisture is mostly a blessing for us. I wouldn't worry unless you live in a flood prone spot like some of the areas in Mayer very close to Big Bug creek that have flooded recently.

The last day of the monsoon season is tomorrow, per the National Weather Service. It is from June 15 - September 30. There are no "days late".

That's "official", but do you really consider the official dates the real dates? Just look at Monsoon season in 2005, up to mid July it was still dry and clear, and turned dry and clear again in early September. Use common sense.

I still use the old method (used up through 2007) of 3 straight days of dews 55°F+ as the start of monsoon season; while for the end of the monsoon, once a 5 day streak of dews below 50°F and a 3 day streak of lows below 75°F have occured (for Phoenix of course), it's over. And the averages for those are July 6th and September 23rd

We had a 5 day stretch of sub 50 dews from 9/11 to 9/15, but then it turned humid again, and mornings haven't cooled off yet, even today the low was 79°F

There's some nice dark clouds overhead today. Maybe we won't have to wait until Wednesday. Fingers crossed.

More dark clouds this afternoon. Today I could tell it was raining way to the west - over in Santa Cruz County. Now there's been booming here and a lightning show out to the west. Only a few drops here though
