Flagstaff’s dewpoints are much above average historic levels. This is driving our intense rainfall amounts. The Flagstaff airport has received 4.165 inches of rain. I have gotten 2.74 inches at my house. 2008, the first July with my station operating, I measured over 4 inches of rain. Bellemont has received 3.13 inches. These variances are typical of the monsoon season. One place gets rain, the next place gets nothing.
But, the dewpoints are quite high. Here is a graph for July.
After a slow start, the moisture is firmly in place. The National Weather Service actually has “Heavy Rain” in the forecast for the next few days. We can expect more of the same for the next few days.
