Looking Around This Afternoon

Edited to add: here's a rarity from Kitt Peak webcam at 2:58 pm - it appears that hail, apparently severe, was falling on the telescopes!

Storms have been developing over higher terrain in all directions this early afternoon - above composite radar plot is for 2:35 pm. The storm near Oro Valley produced a CG flash close enough to here for a rumble of thunder at 2:30 pm. Out to the southwest, a heavy storm (below) was approaching Baboquivari Peak at about 2:00 pm MST.

Looking south toward the Santa Rita Mountains at about 2:30 pm - above. Looking east toward the Rincons, photo below shows a little Cb that tried, apparently in vain.
