Monsoon 2017 is one for the record books

Posted: Updated:
TUCSON -

Monsoon 2017 is in the books as of September 30th, and the official total for this year will go down as 8.57 inches, about 2.50 inches above average for the season.

That's actually the 11th wettest monsoon for Tucson, going all the way back to the late 1800's.

But here's what's really interesting about this season: nearly 80 percent of that 8.57 inches fell between July 10 and July 30th.
So in the matter of 20 days we saw the bulk of our monsoon rain in Tucson.
And that made for July of this year coming in as the second wettest month ever recorded in Tucson.

So the Old Pueblo did pretty good this season, but other locations like Nogales, Douglas and Sierra Vista all came in between one and two inches of rain below average.

And in case you're wondering, Mt. Lemmon picked up nearly 21 inches of rain this monsoon.
