Thunderheads developed over the desert today. It's our monsoon season, which means that instead of clouds moving in from the west and the Pacific Ocean, they move up from Mexico and from Arizona, bringing moisture with them. July and August are our monsoon months. The sky was cloudless this morning, but by 9:30 a.m., thunderheads were developing over our local mountains. They continued to grow and grow. By 4:00 this afternoon, the entire desert was covered with monsoonal clouds and moisture. I could hear thunder from my house. These clouds were quickly moving and they are already clearing out, but the forecast is for more moisture and thunderstorms for the next two days. Ahhhh...summer! SkyWatch Friday for July 16, 2010.
