Yesterday's Rains

Difficult driving conditions on I-10 through Tucson at 2:30 pm MST yesterday afternoon.

ALERT data (above and below) indicate 100 % coverage of measurable rain across the network. (Note the gauge at I-10 and Cienega Wash is obviously out of commission.) I counted 16 sites with half an inch or more.

Here at house we had 0.26" during the middle of the day. TUS reported 0.16"; DM had 0.25"; and Atmo recorded 0.26".

Plot of detected CG flashes (from Atmo and Vaisala) for 24-hours ending 0833Z today (above) indicates widespread thunderstorm activity across all of southeast Arizona, southwest New Mexico, and northern Mexico.

Plumes from 06 UTC for QPF (below) indicate a quiet first week of March is on tap.
