Well, it's sprinkling at my place. The GOES IR loop shows nothing at all for hundreds of miles, which just means there's no significant convection (thunderstorms) around. These clouds overhead must be lower-level clouds. Those don't usually generate much rain. I think these are coming from inland, for all that tells us. The Mexican rainfall prediction model shows only a chance of rain inland from us, in the mountains, for the next 72 hrs.

And there are no tropical storms taking shape down in the breeding grounds right now.

Enjoy the sprinkles!

PS, if you think it has been June-style hot lately, you're right. The last three afternoons at my place have hit 92F or so. Combined with the simultaneous humidities of 66-67%, the Heat Index calculates at almost 110F. Come on rain!
