Springtime flowers are popping. We spotted these dwarf larkspurs in the Turkey Springs area.
Monday – 10 May 2021 – 9:35am
The high temp at Stevens Field yesterday was 61 and the low this morning was 41. Yesterday’s peak wind was 37mph.
The primary upper level low is spinning over Idaho and causing a broad area of strong upper level southwest flow. Our chance for a little precip is better today as a weak trough moves through around midnight.
By Wednesday ridging will then build back into the region and keep us nice the rest of the week.
Today… Clouds will increase and build this afternoon. Spotty showers and a thunderstorm or two are possible until midnight. Our best chance to see some precip will be this evening. Precip amounts in the valley will range from zero to 0.10” and the mountains above 10,000ft will get 1-2” of snow – it will be spotty. As always with showers and thunderstorms this time of year, rain, graupel, and small hail are possible. Winds will peak in the 30-40mph range.
High temps will be upper 50s to mid-60s and lows will be mid-20s to mid-30s.
Tuesday through Friday… I expect lots of sun and a warming trend. Tuesday will be the coolest day with highs in the upper 50s to mid-60s and lows in the mid-20s to mid-30s. Wednesday will be 5 degrees warmer and then we’ll see highs in the 70s the rest of the week. Afternoon winds will peak in the 25-30mph range on Tuesday and then 20-25mph the rest of the week.
