We had 0.37" in the wee hours this morning along with plenty of thunder, and that was enough to knock the power out for several hours. It calmed down in time for the Independance Day parade of school kids which went past the Jardin before 9:00, then returned for some singing and mock battling and speechifying. |
The outlook for today seems more unsettled than it has been lately. No tropical storms looming, but plenty of thunderstorm potential.
Exerpt from the National Hurricane Center's East Pacific Tropical Weather Discussion (http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/text/refresh/MIATWDEP+shtml/):
A SURFACE TROUGH IS ALONG 15N105W 17N106W 19N106W. STRONG CONVECTIVE PRECIPITATION IS FROM 19N TO 22N BETWEEN THE MEXICO COAST AND 108W. SCATTERED MODERATE TO ISOLATED STRONG CONVECTIVE
PRECIPITATION IS FROM 15N TO 18N BETWEEN 101W AND 105W...AND FROM 15N TO 16N BETWEEN 107W AND 108W.
The strong stuff is from right around here to past Puerto Vallarta, while the moderate-to-strong stuff is south of us along that trough.
So I'd keep the umbrella handy for today at least. The greased pole climb this evening might be slippery AND wet...
