FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) — Las Vegas got a little more than a quarter-inch of rain from June to the end of September this year, the 14th driest monsoon season on record.

The monsoon season usually brings high hopes for rain, thunder and lightning in the desert Southwest. This year, it was a dud.

The monsoon runs from mid-June through September, characterized by a shift in wind patterns and moisture being pulled in from the tropical coast of Mexico.

St. George, Utah, had its driest monsoon since 1944, when the city had no rain... Read More
