No Measurable Showers At All

Although there were some sprinkles across the Tucson area yesterday, no measurable amounts showed up either on MesoWest or the ALERT network. We had a Trace here early in the morning. There were 3 or 4 reports of light amounts in Santa Cruz and Cochise Counties (all less than 0.05") - so little to report at all. The morning WRF forecasts were too strong on amounts in Santa Cruz County, but forecast thunderstorms along the Borderlands and northern Sonora - FD plot below indicates storms along the Rim Country also. Both plots above and below are for 24-hours ending at 6:00 am MST this morning.

In the Southeast, the PGA Masters Tournament is underway in a beautiful setting near Augusta, Georgia. At the halfway point a very large number of players are in contention. There was a brief thunderstorm delay yesterday, but today and Sunday will be more challenging with chances for rain and storms increasing through tomorrow afternoon.
