Rained, too, between 3:42 PM and 3:47 PM, actually 273 seconds, if you had your stopwatch out. It was great. I ran around trying to get wet, but couldn’t do it.
Still enough moisture for very shallow Cu fractus, Cu humilis, hold the ice (tops too warm). Skies will also be overrun with Cirrus, maybe verging on Altostratus, as part of low and trough barging into northern California today.Will get nice and breezy this afternoon, as the low zips on into the Great Basin and makes its presence known here. Instantaneous puffs might reach 40 mph this afternoon. No rain possible with this system, darn.
However, deeper Sc and Cu with ice in them should be visible up toward the NW-NE horizon today since a little rain and snow is expected on the M-Rim today, this from the U of AZ super mod’s 06 Z (11 PM AST) run, here.
—————————- 1Here’s the interesting story behind getting THREE public service messages in a single caption/photo: I wanted to both better serve my public by getting some public service messages out there while at the SAME time, documenting some weather singularity, in this case, one of the rare rain events in the Catalina winter of 2013-14. Suddenly, in the midst of the rain I was dancing in, I noticed some shiny drops on the lid of the recycle bin, and things just “came together” you might say for a remarkable photo.
