Our First Monsoon in Arizona

We finally experienced our first monsoon in Arizona and I thought I’d share a compilation of video I took during the thunderstorm. What a cool experience!

 What is a Monsoon? Monsoons are a pattern of pronounced increase in thunderstorms and rainfall, typically occurring July through mid-September. During the monsoon, thunderstorms are fueled by daytime heating and build up during the late afternoon-early evening. The storms will repeat at that cycle, sometimes daily. By mid-September, when conditions are drier and cooler, monsoons typically loose their energy.
