Sky and Ground Thermal Observation for NearSys Station, 13 October 2017

Ground and sky observations were made at 6:20 AM MDT using a Week Reveal thermal imager.

The ground had a temperature of 22 *F. The sky has broken stratonimbus and NearSys Station is experiencing light, intermittent rain. The cloud temperature is 7* F.

Assuming a wet adiobatic lapse rate (since it's raining) of 2.7 *F per 1,000 feet (the actual value depends on the temperature), the height to the cloud base is 5,500 feet. The Boise METAR reports broken clouds at 6,000 feet.
