What is the Monsoon?
The North American monsoon, also known as the Southwest monsoon, or the Arizona monsoon, is a pattern of a major increase in thunderstorms and rainfall over large areas of the southwestern US and NS Mexico, typically it occurs between July and mid-September. During the monsoon, thunderstorms are fueled by daytime heating and build up during the late afternoon to early evening. Typically, these storms dissipate by late night, and the next day starts out fair, with the cycle repeating daily. The big dust storms are called Haboobs. The monsoon usually loses its energy by mid-September when much drier conditions prevail over the region.
