July and August in the Southwest should be monsoon season, rain every day, or almost.
Yet it’s been days of dry with mostly blue sky.
Just a few fluffy clouds drifting over the canyon. Of course there’s never really a bad sky view over the canyon.
In Arizona we depend on the monsoon thunderstorms to water crops and fill reservoirs. The Colorado River has been flowing strong due to water release from Glen Canyon Dam being sent down stream to Lake Mead.
Just to break up the blue monotony
Statistically, weather forecasters consider it a "monsoon day" when the average daily dew point is 55 degrees or higher. Today the dew point is 28 degrees.
Yet at the end of the day, all we can do is pray for the monsoon thunderstorms to come our way.
