suncloudsrainrepeat... (pm.03.sep.15)>

Thursday's stats:

Low temp: 57.4F (14.1C)
High temp: 72.5F (22.5C)
Rainfall: 1.52" (3.9cm) -- updated @ 7:55pm

We have partly cloudy skies as darkness settles in this evening, here at the end of yet another day of extreme variability between sun, clouds and downpours of rain.  The most significant rainfall since midnight actually occurred between about 4:45 and 6:00am, when 0.90" (2.3cm) fell.  But we had another round of occasional rain, thunder and even some small hail from 3:40 until around 5:30pm which contributed at least another 0.50" (1.3cm) to the day's total.  In between those two periods of significant rainfall we were able to enjoy plenty of sunshine -- throughout the morning into the early afternoon hours.

I'm sort of running out of things to say lately... if you click through archived blog posts from the last couple of weeks on the right-side column of the page, you'll find all kinds of discussion and analysis of the dynamics present around here during the waning weeks of the monsoon.  Also you can check out several different tabs at the top of the page which detail rainfall averages and totals, average temperatures, a look forward to the autumn season, along with THE 7-DAY OUTLOOK.
