She's proclaimed June 10-15 Monsoon Awareness Week. The Monsoon begins in mid-June, and extends through late September.

It's characterized by late afternoon thunderstorms that produce lightning, straight-line winds and precipitation. Given the right conditions, a monsoon storm can cause flash flooding and dust storms.
