Monsoon thunderstorms can cause strong winds in the Desert Southwest, and when they do, they can move walls of dust, dirt and sand across entire cities like Phoenix. Find WeatherSphere elsewhere on the internet: http://www.weathersphere.com http
The desert Southwest has been dealing with monsoon thunderstorms nearly every day this week.
Some of these thunderstorms have been strong to severe.
Strong winds from these thunderstorms commonly kick up dust and sand, creating large storms that look like a wall of dust.
During these storms, visibility can drop to almost zero in nearly no time at all.
