Summer monsoon season should be right around the corner. Increased moisture and thunderstorms could bring the area some much-needed moisture and a break from record-breaking heat. KSJD's Austin Cope talked with local weather expert Jim Andrus to learn more about the summer monsoons, what causes them, and what the monsoon outlook is for 2017. 

Austin Cope is a former Morning Edition host for KSJD and now produces work on a freelance basis for the station. He grew up in Cortez and hosted a show on KSJD when he was 10 years old. After graduating from Montezuma-Cortez High School in 2010, he lived in Belgium, Ohio, Spain, northern Wyoming, and Himachal Pradesh, India before returning to the Cortez area. He has a degree in Politics from Oberlin College in Ohio.
