August 2019 Southwest Climate Podcast - Monsoon MiniPod Round 2 - Rogue Storm Late Start Edition

Monday, August 12, 2019

In the this "mini" episode (the Aug 2019 SW Climate Podcast Monsoon Mini) - Mike Crimmins and Zack Guido deconstruct the relative lack of monsoon activity across much of the region, as well as to discuss a few places that are receiving more precipitation than expected (looking at you Ajo). They recap some of the totals through Aug 7 and dive into the mechanics that have been driving this (relative lack of) activity. They also check the 1-2 week forecasts to see whether there is any hope for recovery in the latter half of the monsoon.

Note 1: This was recorded on Aug 7, before the last round of activity (Aug 10 in particular in Tucson).

Note 2: Zack and Mike huddled around our secondary recording option because Ben is on a fieldwork stint in Louisiana (but still managed to edit the podcast remotely), such is all of their dedication to the podcast!  The sound quality is mostly ok; however, the quality of the podcast content is exactly what you'd expect!  We'll go back to our normal routine for the next podcast, when everyone is back in the same room.
