Three thunderstorms with rain here, one overnight, have dumped 0.42 inches here in SH (Sutherland Heights) More is virtually certain. 1.18 inches fell at Horseshoe Bend Road in Saddlebrooke. More reports here and here and here and here, to name a few. Can’t wait for daylight to see how the desert looks.
What an interesting day, beginning with the odd scene of an Altocumulus lenticularis overhead, telling us the wind was substantial and from the east or southeast. Usually you see this cloud in the cool half of the year on the other side of the Catalinas, but there it was, filled with mystery and lightning!
“Little Swirl”, a cyclonic eddy really, but could be somebody’s name, too, to SE moving NW and over us this morning: Look here. Will help keep showers going today, but also check with the real experts. Must quit here as time expires for big bandwidth flow.
