Last nights storms were some of the most electrical of the year. The lightning at 1am was bright and close to everything. It seemed like it was literally non-stop at some points. I picked up a quick quarter of an inch of rain. The follow-on rain shower this morning has boosted my over night total to over half an inch.
The good news is that it is raining again. The bad news is that it is a narrow column of moisture that has broken through a significantly dry, southwestern atmosphere. It looks to be short-lived with a quick return to dry conditions.
