Quick Review Of Yesterday (26 June 2011)

Sunday was another hot and dry day here in southeast Arizona. High temperature in Tucson reached 109F; the hottest day yet this summer. Top photo shows very-high based cu over the Catalinas and just a hint of some virga that occurred during the mid-afternoon. The visible satellite image at bottom shows that there were some small thunderstorms along and just south of the border at 6 pm MST. I was surprised to see that NWS TUS added 10% POPs for precipitation to their afternoon and evening forecasts for theTucson metro area. There was of course no rain, but it has been exciting to see clouds the last couple of days.
