Weather Report for February 17, 2012

Yesterday's forecast proves to be correct. A couple of inches of snow fell on Kitt Peak in the early evening hours. The mountaintop was in a cloud cap for much of the night. No observations were made.

The current storm system is expected to exit to the east rapidly, but it will largely depend on how much sunlight we get during the day that will determine if observations are possible tomorrow night. First, the dome must be cleared of snow before the dome can be opened and humidity levels will need to drop. Keep your fingers crossed.
