What You Should Know About Monsoons

It’s monsoon season again in Arizona!  The Arizona monsoon is a meteorological “event” that happens during the summer in the North American Southwest. During the winter, the wind flow in Arizona is mostly from the west or northwest, from California and Nevada. In the summer, the winds shift to a southerly or southeasterly direction. Moisture comes northward from the Pacific Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico. This shift causes a big change in moisture conditions across Arizona.  That change, along with daytime heat, is the key to the Arizona monsoon.
