Weather Report for April 12, 2016

Continued unsettled weather over southern Arizona makes for another frustrating night at the Kuiper Telescope. Observations of only three bright blazars could be made through clouds during the first three hours of the night. The seeing during the early part of the night was about 1.6 arcsec. After that, the weather worsened with even thicker clouds and some lightning in the area after midnight. It started raining/snowing at about 0300 local time. By daybreak, nearly an inch of snow had fallen at the observatory.
