August Weather Update 2019
The “Non”- Soon – Lack of Monsoon Moisture
As long as I have lived in Sedona, we have had a decent amount of rain in July and August, that is until this year! The rain was significantly down from over 6+ inches in July and August of 2018 to 2.2 inches in 2019. We are at the tail end of monsoon.
How Has This Affected our August weather?
August temps were slightly higher than normal, averaging a little over 2º from the same time period last year. There were 7 more days over 100º compared to 2018 and last year there were 7 days in the 70s and 80s, with 11 in 2017 but none this year in August. Normally there is enough rain to cool off the August temps in Sedona. There have been many years with little to no triple-digit temps in August. It would be too much to assume that September would be a high rain-producing month. In the last 9 years, 4 have had less than an inch of rain. Two months were a little more than one inch leaving only 3 years at around 2.5 inches or more of rain.
There are other areas of Arizona that have seen some rain but not Sedona. I like to share storm cloud videos with lots of lightning and thunder but the weather has not cooperated! So please enjoy this time-lapse video of moving clouds at sunrise and sunset.
