Whisper of rain, originally uploaded by angryparsnip.
Tuesday evening in Tucson, Arizona.
Tucson is getting some clouds from the storm in the Gulf.
We are getting a hint of rain but so far it dissipates before hitting
land because the lack of humidity.
That will all change in a few days or weeks ! Monsoon will be here.
Monsoons come when the perfect storm of climate so to speak, appears ...
In July the humidity increases,
The dew point needs to rise above 54 for three consecutive days
We have consistently high temperatures,
Officially the monsoon will then start with rain, high winds,
lighting, thunder and fabulous clouds but what I love is the smell.
The air is filled with moisture, dust, sage and ozone !
This is what I grew up with and is the fragrance of summer for me.
