Life giving rains return to the Sacramento Mountains this

You would think this was a fall morning shot but it wasn't. It 
was taken near Sacramento, NM on the afternoon of 7-22-11.
Raindrops & puddles...A welcome site.
Only a trickle now...but this arroyo can become a raging torrent
 during flash flood events.

Remnants Of Tropical Storm Don-

Tropical Storm Don moved inland near Baffin Bay, between Corpus Christi and Brownsville, Texas yesterday evening. Don died rapidly once inland...this was something that I didn't expect, nor did a lot of other people. 

An upper level low (Tutt Low) is located over SE NM this morning, and was partly responsible for kicking off yesterday afternoon's and evening's crop of t-storm across the area. We can expect to see similar conditions again today into Sunday. Some of Don's remnant moisture (not much though) will add to the mix, and help produce widely scattered to scattered t-storms across the area.

The Truth Is Stranger Than Fiction!
