Haboob moving through Tucson now! Visibility less than 1/4 mile in many locales. Here is a view from our office. Wind gust to 55 MPH just observed at DM Air Force Base. #azwx pic.twitter.com/8qtr7Op3LH— NWS Tucson (@NWSTucson) July 11, 2021
It’s a rare Tucson dust storm. We usually send our dust toward Phoenix. pic.twitter.com/1WhrzAdNlk— Tim Steller (@senyorreporter) July 11, 2021

Here's evidence the Southwest summer #monsoon is in full swing.
