    Summer Means Dust, Wind and Rain Storms in Phoenix

    Arizona has a lot of desert, and the desert is a dusty place. The Sonoran Desert in Arizona covers both the Phoenix and Tucson metro areas, where dust storms are common during certain times of the year.

    Some people confuse dust storms with monsoon storms. We do have monsoon in Phoenix, and there are dust storms and occasional rain during that season. The Arizona monsoon usually begins in July and ends in September. But we have dust storms at other times of the year, too.

    Whether it is monsoon in Arizona or not, dust storms can be frightening--and beautiful! Enjoy these pictures of Arizona dust storms and monsoon storms. If you have pictures of Arizona storms that you'd like to add to the photo gallery, here's how you do it. Please tell me the date of the photo, and where, approximately, it was taken.

    From the photographer: "This shot was taken in Gilbert on the 7th of June just after a killer dust storm with heavy rain. The photo is a result of dust in the air as well as me telling my camera that it was indoors under tungsten light. The result was the enhanced purple and gold tones. I shot one photo a minute for half an hour in an attempt to capture the entire color spectrum. The shot before this one is lighter and the one after it is heading to blue. This lasted for 60 seconds!!!"
