Watch Rain Shower Appear and Disappear

Monsoonal moisture over the Grand Canyon produced much needed rain this week but watch as a cloud produces a rain shower and watch as that rain disappears.. Hot dry air from the depths of the Grand Canyon is probably responsible for the dissolution of the rain. I thought for sure I was going to be rained on. Watch in HiDef at Full Screen.

Stormy Point Sublime

Point Sublime,  on the North Rim of The Grand Canyon offers one great vista of the canyon and surrounding area. The storm cell images are those that ravaged Southern Utah on Monday causing death and destruction. As I experienced, these cells roll very fast over the landscape and you better be prepared to take cover. I had my vehicle close by and felt secure. With all the monsoonal moisture we have experienced this summer, the depths of The Grand Canyon have really greened up.
