Monsoon weather~SkyWatch Friday, 081409

As I was watering out front yesterday morning, I realized that here it is, in the middle of August, and we haven't had our usual monsoon weather until today. I think we had a few sprinkles in June, when we took our vacation to Lake Tahoe and the Sierras. Usually July and August are our monsoon months and we stop and open up our doors and windows during these summer rains. This year, there hasn't been any rain, however. Today we had some humidity and some thunderheads developed over the valley, but no rain. We are driving back to the Sierras next week and the temps there have been in the 40's at night! This weekend we are supposed to be in the low 100's here in the desert and the mid-70's at night. What strange weather we are having! Skywatch Friday for August 14, 2009.

We are indeed having a strange , very dry Summer here in So Cal.
I hear the monsoons have begun in AZ though at least.
Lovely palms in your photos!

We are finally get a bit of rain after a very dry July here in Coastal BC. Sounds like you are having an even dryer summer than we are. - Margy

Those skies look pretty tame. Though, I guess you are aching for some cooling, drenching rain.
