Nasty Anvil Overhead

The poor vertical wind profile, mentioned in post below, has led to thick anvil and mammatus over the Tucson area this afternoon. Storms over the Santa Ritas threw out the anvil and then dissipated as they tried to move toward Tucson - a more typical situation of the small details complicating things.

Visible image above is for 2:45 pm MST and radar below is from 3:00 pm. The temperature at airport has fallen 3 F since 1:00 pm - so it goes.
