Cool And Clear At Sunrise

Easter morning has dawned cool (45 F here at house), calm, and clear, after a day yesterday that produced more light showers and some thunderstorms. Here at the house there was a morning shower that produced another Trace. Most of the measurable rain was quite light and mainly to the east of Tucson, although there were some storms in central Pima County. Across the ALERT network there were 19 stations with rainfall, mostly higher elevation sites. There were also a couple of sites near the southern and western edges of the network with showers. Only one site had more than 2/10s of an inch and that was on Redington Pass (0.28"). The RAWS stations across southeast Arizona almost all had light rain amounts, but Mt. Hopkins came in with 0.24". A thunderstorm near Douglas apparently produced hail up to 1 inch in diameter.
