A great immediate sign yesterday of the later cloudscape, if you were outside and not working in a room with no windows, was the early Cumulus rising off Ms. Lemmon. Some places got half inch to an inch, but only a trace fell here amid hours of thunder. Here’s the day:
Looks like a similar day today, just eye-balling the maps and stuff, clouds piling up on The Lemmon, drifting NW over Sutherland Heights and Catalina, chance of thunder, some sprinkles or light showers. However, drier air is filtering in from the east as I type, meaning cloud bases will likely be higher than yesterday, and we probably won’t see such an early start to Cumulus forming on Ms. Lemmon as we did yesterday. And not as much cloud cover.
Supposed to dry out tomorrow and Friday further but then moisten up again on football viewing days, Saturday and Sunday as a tropical storm/depression works it way up the Baja coast. Could be a great weekend.
