Looking back at Monsoon 2016

Posted: Updated:

TUCSON - La Niña trumped all, making the Monsoon great again. 

While rainfall totals varied across the metro, Tucson International Airport officially registered 7.40" rain between June 15th and September 30th. That's good for the 26th wettest Monsoon on record (above the average of 6.08") & the wettest Monsoon since 2011. Official Monsoon rain totals for other cities are set to be released later this week by the National Weather Service.

Among the highlights of Monsoon 2016:

  • July was the wettest month at 3.32" rain.
  • The above stat is remarkable, considering Tucson endured the 3rd longest July dry streak on record. 15 straight days without measurable rain.
  • Wettest day of Monsoon 2016 was September 7th, when remnants from Tropical Storm Newton dumped 1.25" rain in Tucson.
