Western Outdoor Times - Times Spent Outdoors: Priceless!

Photos from: Arizonans Encouraged To Prepare For Severe Weather Hazards

A WORD TO THE WISE -- Arizona's monsoon spans the hot summer months of June to mid-September. Extreme heat alone can cause dehydration, heat exhaustion and heat stroke. People over 65 years old, children under 5, persons with a pre-existing medical condition, and individuals who work outdoors during the hottest hours of the day are at a higher risk for heat-related illness. Most Arizonans, however, associate the monsoon with scattered showers and higher humidities. Thunderstorms can cause localized flash flooding, dust storms and - if there's lightning--wildfires. All are advised to be prepared.
