Cold, Clear Morning After

Snow cover on the Catalinas at 7:37 am MST this morning. Images at bottom show south view from Kitt Peak this morning and huge amounts of snow at Forest Lakes (Rim Country east of Payson) yesterday afternoon.

Cold morning here at house with a low of 26 F. Received 0,08" additional rain here yesterday, making event total 0.71" - most rainfall in an event since last July.

ALERT amounts yesterday were generally light or less than 0.04" (north above and south below). Total event amounts for general Tucson area (second below) were generally over half an inch and more than an inch in Redington Pass area. The 2.24" measurement just southeast of Oro Valley looks a bit suspect.

The GEFS plumes here (from 06 UTC runs) indicate a brief and light event next Friday afternoon/evening, as well as a roller coaster ride for the temperatures this week.
