Monsoon season doesn't come to an official close until Sept. 30, but 2021 has already graced us with significantly more summer rains than 2020 did.
Did we mention that July 2021 was deemed the WETTEST MONTH IN TUCSON since weather records started being kept here in 1894?!!
*insert every possible happy emoji here*
According to the National Weather Service, July's rainfall total was 8.06 inches, compared to Tucson's second-wettest month on record: August 1955 with 7.93 inches.
For comparison: Last year (which was Tucson's second-worst monsoon season and I think we can agree that we all hated it), the entire monsoon season ended with a very sad total of 1.62 inches of rain.
To celebrate this year's beautiful monsoon season, here are some of our favorite rainy photos taken by the very talented photographers at the Arizona Daily Star.
