Next week the National Weather Service kicks off their "Monsoon Awareness Week". Every day I will cover a different topic associated with weather safety, such as floods, lightning and even extreme heat.
We need more rain here in the drought stricken southwest and it appears as if some areas will receive some. Some parts of the Borderland saw some rainfall last Thursday and Friday and it looks like we may repeat that pattern again this week.
Most of us here in the Borderland would like to see an end to our “windy season”. In order for this to happen a ridge of high pressure has to build in strong over the Great Basin in the southwestern US.
