Big fat trough to sit on Catalina April 8-9th. But will it bring rain?

I don’t know.  Got burned last time because of overconfidence in spaghetti assessment, so being more circumspect seeing the same strong signal ahead in that stuff today.  Here’s NOAA’s best spaghetti from last night (leftovers) for you this morning:

Valid for 5 PM April 8th.  Means it will be cold for April.
Valid for 5 PM April 8th. Means it will be cold for April.  Some rain?  You would think so, but then again, we live in a desert and its hard to have rain in a desert, especially in April, May, and June.  How will I make it?  I need some motivational rain for blogging!  See how the red lines dip halfway down Baja!  Even a few blue ones in the Southwest indicating this could be a very cold event for April.

 

Cirrus to pass over Catalina today!

Its not like the space station, or Comet Panstarrs, but as a CMJ (cloud maven junior) you should pretend to be pretty excited anyway.  That’s all we got for awhile.  That exclamation mark should be treated as like a cup of coffee, should get you going, excited about anything.

An example of yesterday’s sunset Cirrus/Cirrostratus:

6:51 PM yesterday, in case you weren't looking, though to me, that would be quite odious.

The End.
