TS Bonnie Now Depressed - Watching Thermometer Here

There have now been two named, albeit weak, tropical storms in the Atlantic Basin before the official start of the season (June 1st) for the basin. Bonnie is again a depression and is just ashore in South Carolina. Forecast above from NHC at 8:00 am EDT this morning - Sunday, May 29th.

Visible image of Bonnie above is from 1315 UTC and radar with 500 mb winds below is for 12 UTC (from Jack Diebolt).

Here in Tucson we continue dry since April 12 and also cool. Mornings have been beautiful for walking, with lows here at house from around 45 to 50 F during the past two weeks. 

The GEFS plumes for QPF are indicating a chance for sprinkles and spits as June begins (above from 06 UTC). Not much hope there, but for those watching for the first 100+ F day at the airport, the T plumes (below) indicate a rapid heat-up after June 1st.
