The North American #Monsoon is expected to be active this weekend #ColoradoRiver #COriver #drought

From AccuWeather (Renee Duff):

Showers and thunderstorms will help ease drought conditions in the southwestern United States into the weekend, but also enhance the risk of flash flooding and dust storms.

“Monsoonal moisture will remain in place from part of Southern California to Colorado and New Mexico,” said AccuWeather Meteorologist Jordan Root.
Moisture will continue to stream into the region through the balance of the week.

As is typically the case when the monsoon kicks in at this time of year, storms will tend to blossom over the highest terrain during the afternoon hours and drift toward lower elevations into the evening and overnight.
