Phoenix weather: Monsoon latePosted: Updated:
PHOENIX -- Dry weather is going to continue for Arizona this week with temperatures trending up through Wednesday. Then we'll see some slightly cooler temps and some breezes, but nothing in the way of rain.
It's starting to look like a late, if not very late, arrival for the Arizona Monsoon in 2012. The weather charts over the next two weeks show little evidence of ANY moisture headed our way or the change in the upper air pattern we need to get the monsoon fired up. Usually by the "official" start date of the Arizona Monsoon, June 15, we're seeing activity in southeastern and eastern portions of the state.
