Rip-roaring thunderstorm!

Posted by deanna on July 10, 2008, 10:47 pm

..(that's an official meterological term - I am not
totally unqualified for this job, you know).
After another (4th day in a row) mostly cloudy
day, the skies opened up just minutes after the
meeting in the plaza started tonight and we've been
treated to an amazing thunderstorm for the past 4 hours or so. The radar at Cuyutlan (back on-line
again) shows more convection to the south and west
of us, so it may not be over yet. Today's rainfall total was 1.45 inches which means we've already passed last July's total. This is definitely going
to be a different summer. It looked from here as
though Boca got a lot more rain than we did - hope
we get a report from there in the morning.

For those weather junkies who haven't discovered it
yet - the radar can be accessed by going to: - then click on Radares (on
the blue strip at the top of the site). Choose
Cuyutlan, click on that and you'll see the current
radar signal from just south of Manzanillo.
Buen noche from The Wonderful Deanna.
