Perhaps the base of the clouds is a bit low? I'm used to seeing the peaks beneath the base of the clouds in the summer.
Low bases, fairly moist boundary layer. From the 00Z sounding it looks like we only mixed out to 730 mb. I was hoping the strong convection over eastern Nevada would make it into the basins of northwest Utah today, but I guess the boundary layer had too much of a cap.
Yes. Exactamundo. Low bases.
