Weather Report for March 23, 2012

The night was photometric, very warm, and a bit windy. Early in the night, the seeing was some of the worst endured in many months. There were brief periods when the seeing was 4-5 arcsec and 2-4 arcsec seeing was typical. Only bright targets could be observed in these conditions. The seeing slowly improved as the night wore on. By 0400 local time, the seeing was sub-arcsec. Over a dozen blazars were successfully observed.

The new satellite images used are hopefully temporary, as the usual website that supplies the midnight weather snapshots (NOAA) appears to be down.
