That seems to be exactly what happened last night - take a look at this link from about midnight: |
An hour or two before that, the satellite showed
a large red blob to the north of L.M. and one of the
very long arms of Genevieve coming up to meet it.
Genevieve was elongated at that point but has since
tightened up and slowed down a little. Still not
a threat to the coast though.
Most of our rain this past month has come in from
the northeast at night - a pattern I've never seen
before in L.M. We've gotten used to watching the
southeast for potential thunderstorms and these
have been coming in from the opposite direction.
Our rain gauge showed a total of 1.24 inches this
morning - most of which occurred in about 1 hour
last night. At the height of the storm the streets around the plaza were flooded, which effectively closed the carnival down for the night. It was another very impressive show by mother nature.
Boca Bob - hope your gauge was working. Need a
Daniel - I've pretty much given up on the Cuyutlan
radar too. They're out of service more often than
not and last night was a perfect example of how
accurate it's been. The scary thing is that any
airline flying into Manzanillo uses that same radar - let's hope they just have a problem putting the
signal on-line and that pilots see something else!
