Showers Bringing Some Relief to Dry Summer

Daily showers are providing much needed moisture across Star Valley.  Amounts have been spotty with the greatest reported today .30 at Star Valley Ranch.  On Monday a quick thundershower dropped .50 at the Cakebread Ranch Weather Station.  With the southerly flow bringing Monsoon moisture northward, chances of afternoon and evening showers will continue for the next several days.  Again some areas will remain dry while others may get a brief heavy shower.

The two active web cameras in the Star Valley Ranch area recorded a very interesting cloud day.  Beginning with morning fog, the August sunshine quickly changes the clouds to convective with passing showers by mid afternoon.  Following are videos of the day from each cam.
