The Scoop on the Monsoon

The monsoon season as defined by the NWS began June 15th and runs through Sept. 30th. These dates were set by the NWS in 2008 in order to help the media effectively communicate that thunderstorms are possible during this time frame. For many years the criteria of 3 consecutive days of a 55 degree average dew point in Phoenix (54 in Tucson) was used to declare the beginning of the season. Flagstaff never set criteria and used Phoenix as a guideline. In Phoenix, the average start date was July 7 and the earliest onset occurred on June 17, 2000.
