Kevin Hillstrom Weather ClassOn Thursday, April 25, 1 p.m.Kevin Hillstrom will discuss the variety of weather events common in the Sonoran Desert – from the monsoon season, through the “transition season” to the long, hot days of summer. 

During the summer of 2023, the temperature in The Valley of the Sun stayed over 110 degrees Fahrenheit for 31 straight days. While this past summer was extraordinary, weather happens continually in the Valley, from winter storms amplified by the El Nino effect to the long dry days of summer; from monsoon rains to the drying wind storms called haboobs.

Fortunately, PebbleCreek has its own resident weather expert to explain it. Hillstrom, is a National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) trained weather spotter and self-proclaimed “WeatherHawk”, who will take us on an “annual tour” of weather changes in Maricopa County. NOAA is the federal agency that provides daily weather forecasts, severe storm warnings, climate monitoring to fisheries management, coastal restoration, and the supporting of marine commerce. NOAA extends its reach through science from the surface of the sun to the depths of the ocean floor to keep the public informed of the changing environment around them.

For those interested in weather and the desert environment, this educational opportunity will reveal the dynamics that cause our monsoons and will “take a tour” of the life and death of a monsoon thunderstorm! Kevin will describe the end of the monsoon, called “transition season” and the potential for hurricane remnants to hit The Valley.

If you spend summers in Arizona, this is a class you don’t want to miss! Hillstrom will give a preview of what to expect during the 2024 Monsoon season! Bring your curiosity and your questions on April 25.
