Surreal View

The surreal view above is from the Kitt Peak north-looking web cam at about 7:30 am MST this morning. The overnight event iced up the camera. Skies are now partly cloudy as the weather system heads on to the east and northeast. Across the ALERT network about 100% of the stations had precipitation during the night, with amounts mostly in range 1/10 to 3/10 inch. Here at house we had 0.12". Heaviest amounts were in the Catalinas and Rincons. Five sites had over half an inch and Manning Camp is reporting 0.87" this morning - may be suspect since much of precipitation up there should have been snow. As the system moved through wind gusts to around 30 mph were common. Highest gusts I saw were 57 mph at the Guthrie RAWS site and 65 mph on the roof at Atmo.
