About real clouds, weather, cloud seeding and science autobio life stories by WMO consolation prize-winning meteorologist, Art Rangno
BTT you read this, rain oughta be falling or near by as the remnants of ‘Manda hurricane dribble into Arizona today. Looks like there’s just enough rain upstream right now (4 AM) to produce, hold your breath, a MEASURABLE amount here in Catalina! Likely will be just a few hundredths, though, as much as two tenths is about the top potential from this. At this point, anything measurable is a fabulous rain!
Mods have been oscillating on whether it would rain here for many days, but last night’s run ended pleasantly with a “correct” forecast of measurable rain. See green pixelation over Catalina below:
