Overall situation…

The cold front moved through last night with no precip and just a few clouds. This afternoon temps only made it into the low to mid-40s and those blustery winds made it feel chilly.

Peak winds this afternoon:

  • Stevens Field 35mph
  • Pagosa Weather just north of Turkey Springs 36mph
  • Wolf Creek Summit 50mph

Ridging will take over the rest of the week, however a weak trough will move through Friday afternoon/evening and bring a few more clouds and a chance for a few mountain showers.  The trough won’t have any impact on the warmer than average temps.  Friday, Saturday, and Sunday will be really nice!

My forecast…

Tonight through Sunday… Skies will be mostly clear except for Friday afternoon when spotty showers are possible over the mountains.

Low temps tonight will be 0-10.  High temps tomorrow will be upper 40s to mid-50s and lows will be mid-teens to low 20s.  Thursday will be a little warmer and then Friday through Sunday we’ll have highs in the 60s and lows in the 20s.

The GFS precip for Friday shows 0.10” to 0.20” over our mountains.  It is the most optimistic of the models I looked at.

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!
