East Winds Break Through Here

The last three mornings here at the house have been quite frosty and cold with lows of 27 F, 25 F, and 26 F on Christmas morning. However, gusty east winds began yesterday afternoon. The first web cam shot from campus this morning (above at 8 am MST) shows east winds blowing there right after sunrise. The gusty winds continued through the night at the airport, resulting in a mild morning down there - time series below shows that minimum this morning was more than 10 F warmer than that on Christmas.

Here at the house the winds went calm during the night and temperature was down to 36 F before sunrise and headed toward another below freezing low. But, around 7:15 am the east winds broke through and the temperature jumped up to 50F - so ends the string of several below freezing mornings here in the Rillito bottoms.
