Brief Look At Yesterday's Storms

Our internet connection has been down this morning until about half an hour ago. So little time to do much this morning.

Can't seem to add images - things are in disarray here.

Thunderstorm here around 4:30 pm yesterday - winds gusting from south-southeast at E60 mph. Quite a bit of damage around the city. Looked like core was going to hit here but it made a left turn - total rainfall for entire day ended up at only 0.20".

Today, PW remains high, but the upper-level IT, with dry air, is moving directly overhead. The core of this IT was devoid of storms in Mexico yesterday, and the 06 UTC WRF-GFS gets some storms going late afternoon only over the Catalinas. Looks like it will be a considerably down day wrt yesterday.

Will await Mike's discussion later this morning.


  1. Major damage on the East side near Speedway and Kolb down to Harrison. Large trees and power poles down. In my neighborhood at least a few trees down per cul-de-sac.

  2. Saw only a couple of trees down over here - nothing like over in your part of the city. Thanks for report - Bob
