According to the National Weather Service, August 2013 was the 11th wettest August since 1898. As I mention in earlier posts, the airport record only goes back to 1950. Looking at the airport data, August was the 7th wettest at 4.85 inches. And it looks like more is on the way.

The 6-10, 8-14 and one month outlooks for September all have above normal chances for precipitation. The 6-10 day out look from the Climate Prediction Center is below.

All of these outlooks build a picture that changes much of Arizona’s drought outlook. The full green areas below show that removal of the drought rating could occur. This is very rare in the Southwest.
