And the contest winner is…..

Congratulations Nikolet Lenhert! You have won a $25 gift certificate for some super yummy Rosie’s pizza for guessing the closest time that the airfield would drop below 0F! We’ll send you a personal message about how to claim your prize.

For the second time the airfield temperature and dew point stopped reporting again last night. So the Pagosa Weather team looked at other nearby data back to 13 December to determine temps and times. We are confident that the airfield did not get below zero until 2:30am this morning, 16 Dec 2020. Nikolet’s guess of 16 Dec at 7:45pm was closer than Roslyn’s guess of 15 Dec at 6am.

Thanks to everyone who participated! We hope to come up with another contest soon.

I’ve been a “weather geek” since I was young child. I joined the military out of high school and was lucky to get my dream job in weather. I have 20 years of military weather experience which includes forecasting the weather all over the world. Highlights were six years in Alaska and making life and death weather decisions during deployments. I love mountains, I love snow, and I love summertime thunderstorms. I spend a bunch of time playing outdoors and found my paradise in Pagosa Springs. I do Pagosa Weather as a community service. Hopefully you find us helpful!
