Why Are We Saying Goodbye To The Monsoon So Early This Year?

That cool air might signal the end of our beloved monsoon.

Well, I am not complaining about the cooler temps. It’s really nice to finally get a break here, but unfortunately, it does mean the monsoon is probably over for the year.

The official end of the monsoon is Sept. 30, but I got a hold of Ken Waters at the National Weather Service here in Phoenix to find out why we have to say goodbye to the monsoons so early this year.
