I am a little surprised that nobody has started a thread yet for the 2022 Southwest Monsoon, given its exceptionally early and strong start. In fact, an article in the Albuquerque Journal yesterday quoted a meteorologist saying that since record-keeping began in 1905, this is the earliest that there has ever been a monsoon onset of this intensity in New Mexico. Very much needed, given the extreme drought in much of the Four Corners states. Here in Pagosa Springs, CO, we have had close to an inch and a half of rain in the past week, bringing us well above the usual June total of under an inch - and more is likely on the way before June is over. The attached pictures are of sunlit mammatus last evening after a rather light (compared to several other recent storms) thundershower passed over our house.
