Ground and Sky Observation for NearSys Station, 10 November 2017

It's raining at NearSys Station. A thermal observation was taken at 4:30 PM MST that indicated the ground had a temperature of 26 *F and the sky a temperature of 15 *F. Since It was raining, a moist adiobatic lapse rate of 3 *F was assumed.

A temperature difference of 11 *F determines the base of the clouds are at an altitude of 3,700 feet. The Boise METAR reported clouds at 4,000 feet.
