Thunderhead Remnant

With the resumption of Eastern Pacific tropical cyclone activity, bands of moisture are now crossing into the north such as to combine with the Sonoran heated desert to produce thunderstorms. We weren’t directly under any of today’s activity, but it’s just a matter of time until we are.

The dissipating thunderhead in the (clickable) image above was east of us over the mountains. Looking at NWS Doppler radar earlier, we could see some heavy echoes but no warnings or advisories. I had a dental appointment today and was worried that the storm might catch me out and about, but that didn’t happen.

The second tropical storm in the Pacific (TS Bud) is due to send more moisture our way by the weekend. We’re ready for it and could use the rain.
