TUCSON-The showers and storms from earlier today were a product of a healthy monsoon in many parts of Southern AZ the last few months. We had plenty of moisture leftover in the valley floor with a high soil moisture count and very green vegatation says Chief Meteorologist Rob Guarino. This combo helped put just enough juice on the air to fuel the typically drier atmosphere here in Mid September.
We hoped you enjoyed the storms today because the dry air is moving in tonight and this will shut down thunderstorm development well into next week.
On another note we are starting to see the first signs of El Nino over the Pacific Ocean and this could signal an active snow season above 7000 feet and above normal rainfall in the valley floor come this winter.
Thanks for all the emails, call in observations, and pictures the last few months you made my life much easier when the storms were popping across the area. Bring on El Nino!
