Thankfully we ended the season with three days of measurable rain in the state or the numbers would have been worse. The monsoon runs from June 15 to Sept. 30.

Some areas of the Valley were lucky, receiving over 4” of rain. But this year, hardly any rain at Sky Harbor. Hopefully, this October will end up like last October where we saw some nice tropical systems bring us some much-needed rain.
