Pepper Ridge North Valley Random Weather Facts
MONSOON The word "monsoon" comes from the Arabic "mausim" which means "a season" A common misuse of the term "monsoon" is to refer to INDIVIDUAL thunderstorms as "monsoons" (example - "The North Valley was pounded by monsoons this evening!"). The correct statement would be "The east valley was pounded by strong thunderstorms this evening!"
A MONSOON is a Seasonal wind shift that often brings a dramatic increase in moisture, and associated shower and thunderstorm activity, to the affected region. As the monsoon ends, and the winds shift again, the reverse occurs, with much drier air moving into the area.
