PHOENIX -- While floods happened all over the Valley this past month, certain areas are behind on their average monsoon rainfall.

Both South Mountain and Northern Maricopa County experienced a one-thousand-year flood in mid-August after sudden heavy rain.

However, some Valley communities are still behind in rainfall this season according to meteorologists at the National Weather Service.

Phoenix Sky Harbor recorded an inch and a quarter of rain, more than an inch and three quarters less than last year. East Mesa is also behind with almost two inches below the normal.

Scottsdale, Deer Valley, and Apache Junction are closer to their norms.

With the weather forecast this weekend, Phoenix City Officials are offering sand for sand bags for flood prevention in case another round of pouring rain comes along in a short amount of time.

The monsoon season in Arizona goes from June 15 to Sept. 30.
