Early Morning Showers And Sprinkles

Heavy clouds as seen from Atmo this morning at a bit before 7:00 am MST.

Some sprinkles and light showers have been moving across the Tucson metro area this early morning. Composite radar image above was at 5:27 am and IR satellite image below was at 6:00 am. 

It was raining lightly here at 6:00 am and gauge has 0.01". Amounts have been light; mostly a Trace to a few hundredths.

By 6:24 am (composite radar above) the showers had mostly moved east and north of the City. The TWC morning sounding (below) has nearly an inch of PW but is also very dry below 700 mb.

Some chances for another band or two of showers today. After the weak short-wave associated with the showers moves across the Great Basin, there will another chance for light showers around the 9th. Then it looks like a strong ridge will be dominant over the West at least into mid-December.
