PHOENIX - More than 100 days now, and still no measurable rain in the Valley.
The National Weather Service says Phoenix has only had 1 inch of rain since Aug. 24 of last year, and there isn’t any rain in the forecast in the near future.
But before you lose hope, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has some encouraging projections for much of Arizona, including the Phoenix area.
According to an experimental outlook by the NOAA Climate Prediction Center, much of the state could see greater than normal chances for precipitation from July 7-20.
Conditions for that period of time may help tropical cyclones develop over the East Pacific Basin, which could have an impact on our monsoon moisture, according to the outlook.
And so, though there's little hope that we'll see the end of our dry streak in June, it's starting to look like July may be our light at the end of a rainless tunnel.
