Monsoon rains have consistently led to flooding this month, and the National Weather Service thinks this year's rainy season will maintain average levels.

Officials expect about six total inches of rain from the Monsson. 

Last year, Tucson got an above-average 7.4 inches of rain. Most of that came in July.

This July is likely to be the rainiest Monsoon month again. This year's Monsoon has yielded three inches so far.

The wettest Monsoon on record is 1964, when Tucson was drenched with 14 inches.
