MONSOON SOON?

We’ve had actual humidity lately, building big clouds and reducing total sunlight – but plenty of robust thermal activity nonetheless.  The coming weekend will warm to about 100 F, with more welcome shade coming from the mountains and some chance of overdevelopment each afternoon.  Last week the Crystal Squadron flew north up the Sierras, with three pilots reaching Austin, NV, 352 miles away.  Their stories are featured below.
