Heavy Clouds And Some Sprinkles

Big weather day today, at least wrt weeks past. Heavy clouds cover southeastern Arizona this morning, as well as most of state. View above to north of Kitt peak from a bit after 8:00 am MST, while the three visible satellite images below are all for 7:30 am this morning.

The larger views for the Southwest (above) and for the tropical latitudes (below) show that the moisture and clouds have come north-northeastward around the large anticyclone over Mexico. Clouds here are based around 600 mb, with some virga around. There are actually light showers affecting parts of Cochise County this morning. So, a bit of a surprise has sneaked in from about 20 degrees north.
