Rainfall totals across much of northern Arizona exceed normal amount

Almost each location recording rainfall totals across northern Arizona reported measurements far above what they might have usually skilled by this level in the summertime monsoon season, based on information from the National Weather Service. 

“The next one to two weeks also seem like they’re going to be pretty active and wet in a lot of the area,” mentioned Justin Johndrow, a climate service meteorologist.

“So that’s just going to add on to these totals and maybe even get farther above normal over the next couple weeks,” he mentioned. 

The departure from the normal rainfall varies broadly across northern Arizona, with many locations reporting between a half-inch to 2 inches extra rain than standard. 

But the rainfall totals in just a few locations together with Bellemont, the Heber Ranger Station, Prescott’s Sundog Water Plant in addition to Sunset Crater and Walnut Canyon nationwide monuments recorded over 3 inches extra rainfall than they sometimes obtain at this level within the season.
