Evening Thunderstorms Over Parts Of City
Thunderstorms developed over parts of the city yesterday evening around 7:00 to 7:30 pm MST. Above is IR image at 8:00 pm and below is CG flash density for 12-hours ending at 7:45 am this morning. Some of the displays of Vaisala data at Atmo seem to be having trouble with the time part of the data.
Regardless, there was a nice period of rain and thunder here at the house, which was a pleasant surprise. Ended up with 0.16" in the gauge here. The zoomed display of ALERT data below (for 24-hours ending at 6:30 am) shows the area with heavier amounts - considerably higher totals at a number of sites than occurred on Friday. Across the entire network 32 of 93 sites reported rainfall.
