Attack of the showers: Phoenix has second-wettest May in its history

Phoenix is known for being very dry, starting in January and continuing the rest of the year, with slight reprieve during monsoon season.

So it comes as a bit of a surprise that May 2015 was Phoenix’s second-wettest month of May in history, according to the National Weather Service.

The month of May saw 1.17 inches of precipitation in Phoenix — historically beat only by May of 1930, in which the city received 1.31 inches of precipitation.

But don’t get used to that — Arizona’s hottest months are upon us.
