Monsoon is winding down and I will recap a few rain statistics for Flagstaff here. A very wet summer indeed, although we sat on pins and needles waiting for the rain, following a very dry Spring, with only 0.03" of rain in June. The monsoon got kicking the first week of July and it was pouring by 7/5. Not sure if July was the record or .01" shy as there is some discrepancy in the records, looks like 7.57", just shy of 7.58" record in 1919. The July avg. precipitation is 2.40". August was wet as well and so was September. Here's how summer precipitation shapes up thus far.
