Sky and Ground Thermal Observation for NearSys Station, 15 February 2018

A thermal measurement at 6:15 PM MST indicated a ground temperature of 14 *F And a cloud temperature of -2 *F. At a difference of 16 degrees and assuming a dry adiabatic lapse rate of 5.4 degrees per 1,000 feet, the cloud base is 3,300 feet above the ground.

The stratocumulus above NearSys Station were producing small amounts of virga earlier.
