The first of a couple of patches of rain over the next 36 h are passing through now, R at this second, 4:40:32 AM, and 0.09 inches of rain so far. Nice.
U of AZ Wildcat mod run at 11 PM AST last night has intermittent light rain most of the day here now. What a great model run!
And with the last troughy coming across tomorrow during the day, with another chance of light rain then, too. Looks like we’ll easily go over 2 inches for the month of December (1.94 inches now), the first above normal in rainfall winter month since November a year ago.
Yesterday’s clouds and flowers
Not as widespread or dense as expected in the afternoon, but prettier, which helps counteract error. Let us begin our review of clouds with some paper flowers; there are still some blooms out there! Amazing.
The weather way ahead
Threat of a larvae killing cold wave later this month fading; looks like that cold air will end up in the eastern US now, and no further precip after the series this week. Darn.
