We got 2.1 inches of rain and about 2 inches of snow. Was down by Willcox javalina hunting, so I missed all the excitement at the cabin.

Only got a half inch today. Temps still up in the 40's loving the moisture. All the stock ponds are full, and seasonal streams are running.

Over 9 inches for the year all ready.

6 inches of snow last night. but melting off pretty quick. Looks like it will be a really good year if the monsoon makes it on time, and is of normal amounts.

Terry

That's great to hear. Hopefully the monsoons will start on time.

From: BOHNTR

We got 8” at my place in the White Mountains....most of it is melted already. Ground is saturated from the heavy rains last week. Should be green this spring and into summer.

SRP says their storage is 99% full. Tonto Creek is flowing at 900 cubic feet per second into Roosevelt. A good year.

Got a nice little snow storm in Forest Lakes on Friday. Maybe 3-4 inches. Everything is good and wet at the end of March. Should be a great spring!

Been remiss about updating this thread, but April was good, May not so much and June is off to a good start. April. 6 inches, May .5 and June .05 today. Hope we get an early start to the monsoon. Total YTD 15.4 inches, so off to a good start. Most of the seasonal creeks are still running. Stock tanks are mostly full.

Monsoon looks to be starting in NM. Hope it gets here soon and douses the Bush fire.

First rain of the Monsoon. 1/4 inch. Temp went from 94 to 63 almost instantly. On a side note, also heard the first bugle of the year. This AM. May have been a cow as also heard lots of mews.

Ended the day at .41 inches.

another 1/4" during the night.....wish it was more, though.

From: Knothead

I'm getting the feeling summer monsoons may be a thing of the past down here in this concrete jungle called the valley of the sun. Over last 15-20 years we seem to only get 2-3 storms a year that ever make it to my house in NW part of valley. So far this summer I have received about 5 minutes of spit.

Sure hope it comes down good for the rest of the state until about Aug. 20th.

Spent the weekend up on the Rim. Did get some storms, but nothing too intense. The is the second weekend since early July I’ve spent up there and both have been what I’d call a low grade monsoon. Just doesn’t feel like the full blown monsoons I usually encounter. This year is definitely under performing, at least were I’ve been. Looking at next week, hot temps and dry weather appear to win out again. Sure hope it ramps up in August.

Terry, What are your totals for the year so far? I noticed last July 2019 you had over 3.5 inches of rain for the month and August had over 2 inches. I hope August is better than July was but forecast is pretty dismal.

From: AZBUGLER
02-Aug-20
We got 2” out of the storm in Forest Lakes on Saturday! It was awesome! Heavy marble sized hail for a while.

From: Coyote 65

Knothead, as of 4 Aug. 17.43 inches. AZbugler is on top of the rim, I live right under the rim, maybe 15 miles form him as the crow flies. That tells you how streaky the storms have been.

Over all, this monsoon season is a DUD, much like last year. The weather folks are now saying that we are in a MEGA DROUGHT.

There's been no measurable rain in the White Mountains for a while. Stage 1 restrictions start tomorrow. Unreal.

Honestly can’t think of another year I’ve seen it this bad. Been spending some time in 4a for my daughter’s youth elk hunt and I have yet to see a single dirt tank with any water.

I have a 500 gal tank behind the house. Fill it up about once a week. Just deer drinking from it.

Looks like about 19 inches less rain and 100 inches less snow when you compare 2020 to 2019. Lets all hope 2021 is a better year in all ways than 2020.

From: bowbender77

Rain totals for 2020 in the Flagstaff area are the lowest EVER recorded. Can you say MEGA DROUGHT ?
