Crisp Cool Morning Here

Cool morning here at house with low temperature of 44 F.  Some cloudiness continues this morning, as the photos here from around 07:00 am MST show.

The WRF forecasts from Atmo were quite good for this event, capturing the Tucson donut hole and forecasting no rain at the airport yesterday - which is what occurred. DM did have 0.01" yesterday and here at house we added 0.07" during afternoon showers, making our total for the event 0.10". The ALERT map above is for 24-hours ending at 07:00 am this morning - shows the donut hole quite nicely, as well as some rain amounts near and over a quarter of an inch around the Tucson Mountains and along I-10.

The CG flash density plot below is for 48-hours ending at 07:00 am - the northeast half of state had considerably more thunderstorm activity than rest of state.
