It's hailing. Pretty big hail. Cars are outside. Ground is covered. I'd post a picture, but we've all seen hail photos before.

Oh boy.
Up to two more feet of snow in the mountains this week.

Some more snow likely at our place.
On the bright side, it’s still terrific Latakia weather.

Yup. I saw the Doplar Radar of the SF Bay area. Tons of rain, and also more snow. But, oh, the next dry wildfire season in CA is going to be epic. The plus side is with these late rains, it may not dry and turn brown until the summer of 2020.

As for here today, were totally cloudy, and on Wednesday the overnight low will be 51f and a high of only 71. This has to be setting some new records for southern Arizona, but am enjoying it while I can.

Overnight low of 52f and a forecast high of 78f. And again, SW winds developing to 23 mph.

This map explains why our weather has been so unseasonably cool....

I got to work this morning in Downtown Denver and there was only the smallest of signs of snow...looked more like slush near the curbs and close to the buildings.
