We had a wet and cool August. The National Weather Service in Flagstaff published their monthly report for August. Northern Arizona was cool and wet. The wet piece probably surprises no one. The part I find interesting is that the cool temperatures and above average precipitation prevailed in most of Northern Arizona. Too often, we have a bimodal summer. Flagstaff had 2.2 inches over the average precipitation, and 3.8 degrees below normal. I usually think +/- 2 degrees is in the normal range.
The monsoon season may have one more wet session in store for us. As tropical systems continue to march up the West Coast, they may bring more moisture to are region. This weekend is the next big chance.
