July 2017 CLIMAS SW Climate Podcast - Monsoon Round One (Plus the 122nd Coolest June on Record)


In this edition of the CLIMAS Southwest Climate Podcast - Mike Crimmins and Zack Guido sit down to discuss Southwestern weather & climate, including:

  • The extended heat wave of June 2017 (and the near record heat for the first half of 2017 (Jan-Jun)) (1:00 - 15:00),
  • The wildfires in the Southwest , and the role that a monsoon late arrival might have played (15:00-19:00)
  • The Southwestern Monsoon - the components of the system, comparisons to other years, and what we might expect going forward (19:00-38:00)

As a note: this was recorded on Jun 12, 2017, before most of the extended run of monsoon activity that hit southern Arizona Jun 10 - Jun 17 (and is ongoing!). Mike and Zack will discuss more about this (amazing) week in the next edition of the podcast.
