Another hot day yesterday - then low-level moisture!

Monday July 24, 2006, was yet another hot and dry day for southern Arizona. Links to two newspaper stories on the heat in the Southwest are:



Monday's reports - Phoenix had a high of 114F with a late evening, high-based thunderstorm producing wind, dust, and a trace; Yuma had a high of 114F with no rainfall; and Tucson had a high of 108F with yet another day of very suppressed convection.

The good news is that moist, low-level air surged into most of southern Arizona during the night. So, temperatures will moderate some but at the cost of higher humidities. I think all of us here in southern Arizona hope that the higher humidities will bring increased storms and rain!
