CG Flashes Yesterday - May 22nd

I was curious as to how far north thunderstorms are occurring along the west coast of Mexico, so I grabbed the above plot of CGs flashes detected yesterday (from Atmo and Vaisala for 12-hours ending at 11 pm MST on May 22nd). While there considerable thunderstorm activity over the Inter-mountain West and east of the Continental Divide, the west coast of Mexico remains quiet, except for regions well south of Cabo Corrientes. So not yet much sign of things to come, as July slowly approaches

As similar plot below (but for 24-hours ending at 1:00 am today) shows there were even isolated thunderstorms over northwest Arizona. That's Lake Mead near center of graphic.
