PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) – Arizona's Weather Authority is counting down the days until Monsoon 2020, which starts June 15.
To help you stay safe, Arizona's Family will air Monsoon 2020: An Arizona Weather Authority Special on 3TV at 10 p.m., and again on Saturday, June 20, on both 3TV and CBS 5.
Arizona's Weather Authority teamed up with the Flood Control District of Maricopa County to bring you the most up-to-date information ahead of the summer storms. The District was created in 1959 to reduce the risk of flooding in the county. FCD provides real-time flood alert maps for everyone in the Valley. The meteorologists of Arizona's Weather Authority use it, too.
The District also has a variety of tools and resources to help keep you informed and prepared for Monsoon 2020.
Some of the informative stories you will see in this year's special include:
- How our team of meteorologists forecasts the monsoon;
- How first responders will answer water calls during the COVID-19 pandemic; and
- An update about the dust storm sensors on area freeways.
Arizona's Weather Authority is the largest and most experienced team of meteorologists of any news operation in the state of Arizona and one of the largest weather units in the region.
