Not much Rain today

On my drive to school this morning I had to turn my windshield wipers on a few times as I crossed the point of the mountain. Looking out across the rest of the valley I could see it was trying to rain just about everywhere else, but it was nothing but virga. Virga is a result of rain evaporating before it hits the ground, like in this picture...

The radar echos, however, make it look like the rain was widespread and heavy. Nope, most of this stuff was evaporating.

Our camera at SunCrest shows a quick set set of snow blowing over. 



The rest of the day has been but quite mild and cloudy with popcorn cumulus sprouting all around and stratus moving in this evening.
