It’s monsoon season again Arizona!
The word “monsoon” is derived from the word mausin, Arabic for “season” or “wind shift.” It is now used to refer to a meteorological event that the National Weather Service declared in 2008 stretches from June 15th to September 30th throughout the Southwest region of the United States.
Arizona winds usually come from the west, but shift to a southeasterly wind in the summer, most often from the Gulfs of Mexico and California. This shift causes a big change in moisture conditions across the state. Blinding dust storms (known as haboobs), torrential rainfall, and lightning strikes result.
Monsoon season storms – as most Arizonans are all-too-familiar with – often strike suddenly and with violent force. These storms can be damaging! Flash floods, lightning strikes and strong winds, can all damage your weighing equipment. If your scales are damaged in a monsoon storm, contact Southwestern Scale Company at 602-243-3951.
