Here are the flood catchment basins again only in still photo format. This was less than a half hour after the end of the rain, which brought me 1.2 inches more on top of the 1.5 inches I got last week in a couple more storms. That means the July total so far is 2.7 inches or so, appx 70 mm. I think the basins collectively captured somewhere around 80,000 gallons of runoff yesterday afternoon. Like I said in my prior post, this is more water in one storm event than I used during this entire drought, replaced in one storm, which is exactly why I created these recharge basins to begin with. It is a simple and effective way of procuring the water supply which sustains me and all my plants through the dry spells. . The weather set up for a couple of days from now looks rather interesting. A low pressure wave appears to be migrating eastward out of Texas and will cross New Mexico into Arizona and possibly eventually push as far west as the deserts of California and Nevada. As it migrates through the atmosphere, this low pressure wave could provide strong forcing in already saturated air and bring a widespread thunderstorm outbreak across even the low deserts which normally see much less chance of this kind of rain. This is extremely unusual, but not unheard of. Most of our weather approaches from the west, rather than the east, in Arizona. The National Weather Service is saying that this pattern looks similar to a late July event in 2006, when historic amounts of rain fell out of the monsoon season over the Tucson region and most of the rest of the state. It will be interesting to see if this forecast verifies, because it could mean much more additional rainfall to this drought parched region that had a non-soon back in 2020. Stay tuned for updates. . #MonsoonSeason #Monsoon #ArizonaMonsoon #Monsoon2021 #Nonsoon #DesertRain
