Still Cold Here At House

Another cold morning in southeast Arizona with temperatures from teens into 40s at 7 am (below - note that red numbers are dewpoints), with Organ Pipe out west at 27F. Some snow still lingers in the shadows at Kitt Peak (above). Here at the house it is our third consecutive morning with a low of 20F (5th morning in a row with lows in the 20s), accompanied by heavy frost. Some of the plants in the yard are cearly suffering. Other lows: Sasabe 21F and Empire 23F, but the mountain top RAWS stations are now warmer than some of the lower elevations, with lows of 39F at Mt. Hopkins, 32F up on the Rincons, and 23F on Mt. Graham.
