Soggy Pattern Continues

Above view is of Thimble Rock a bit before sunrise.

Above is 24-hour CG flash density ending at 6:15 am MST this morning. Active storm region shifted northward some, although there was much thunder here at house during early afternoon. A very light shower produced only 0.03".

Alert rainfall below for 24-hours ending at 6:30 am indicates heaviest amounts mostly over the mountains and little for metro area, except for the nearly stationary storm west of downtown. This storm produced 2.48" at one ALERT site, producing flooding and several rescue situations.

This morning's TWC sounding is similar to yesterday's (skewT plot below) with almost 2 inches of PW and substantial CAPE, but winds remain very light below 300 mb. Strongest winds are above 200 mb and from the northeast, and these will likely produce considerable anvil shading for parts of the metro as storms develop again very early in the day. Threat continues for local heavy rains, wet microbursts, and some flooding due to slow moving storms.
