Satellite shows clear skies over much of the western US. The ridge, currently along the West Coast, will move over us on Sunday, allowing the next system to move through on Monday – 4/29/2021 at 10:30am
Thursday – 29 Apr 2021 – 11:15am
The high temp at Stevens Field yesterday was 58 and the low this morning was 31. Yesterday’s peak wind was 20mph.
An upper level ridge is building across the western US and will keep our weather nice through Sunday. Our next system will move through on Monday, bringing more clouds, a few showers, and cooler temperatures.
Today through Sunday… Scattered cumulus clouds will develop each afternoon. On Sunday spotty afternoon showers are possible over the mountains. Afternoon winds will peak around 20mph today through Saturday and then 25-30mph on Sunday. I’m keeping an eye on higher winds and increased fire danger Sunday.
High temps will mostly be in the mid-60s to mid-70s, though the warm spots will be near 80 on Saturday. There is a good chance we will have a winner for the 75 degree contest!
Low temps will be in the upper 20s to upper 30s.
*** Local area streams will significantly rise this weekend due to high country run-off. ***
Monday… Expect more clouds and a chance for afternoon showers and a thunderstorm or two. High temps will be upper 50s to mid-60s and lows will be low 20s to low 30s. Afternoon winds will peak in the 20-25mph range

I hope to get motivated this afternoon and do a summary for April, otherwise, my next post will be Saturday morning.
