I've only been to Tucson a couple of times but one of those featured some of the most spectacular weather I had ever seen (and I've had a decent dose of midwest t-storms and a little taste of caribbean island hurricane, too...) We were driving in blistering heat from Palm Springs and, a bit before we passed Phoenix, the sky was brown with sand. Then hitting Tucson at dusk, what we were later told was a monsoon made its presence know. We drove towards a black sky to the ESE with giant bolts of lightning and a red sunset behind being reflected in the blackness. Beautiful. The rains came hard but ended before our gig, leaving the air relatively cool and crackling with whatever ions you get in that situation...

That's the Monsoon at its best. Weather cells are so tightly focused here that you get pockets of rain next to patches of sun, some areas under cover of darkness already and some with an hour of light to go. And the post-rain feeling is incredible, as you describe. I'm coming to appreciate the pre-rain tension, too, though it gives me a headache.
