A Rosa Sunrise
Sunrise was gorgeous this morning in North Phoenix, but we won’t be seeing much of our favorite star over the next few days. As Hurricane Rosa’s remnants blow into the Valley, rain is expected to begin later today or tonight. See the latest update on the storm.
For the record, the clouds that generated this colorful sunrise this morning were not part of Hurricane Rosa, per se. Rather, they were generated by moisture that had been in Mexico and was pushed, by Rosa, into Arizona, explained Austin Jamison, a meteorologist at the National Weather Service office in Phoenix. “Humidity is on the rise this morning,” he said.
