Yesterday's Event Mostly For Catalinas

Yesterday the showers and thunderstorms stayed mostly over and west to north of the Catalinas, with only some light showers in parts of the metro. Here at house we ended with 0.05", while low this morning was 37 F. View above is from 9:00 am MST yesterday morning, showing some light rain between campus and the foothills.

There were some thunderstorms around as per yesterday's detected CG flashes (from Atmo and Vaisala) above for 24-hours ending at 5:00 pm. Radar/gauge rainfall estimates ending at 7:00 am this morning, below, from WDT via Maricopa County FCD. All-in-all a pretty puny event, especially given the model forecasts several days out that indicated much more significant precipitation.

Looks like December will come in with considerably cooler and much more unsettled weather, which would be a welcome change.
