The high temp at Stevens Field yesterday was 67 and 72 today. The low this morning was 30. Yesterday’s peak wind was 26mph and 29mph today. The colder spots are still seeing lows in the low-20s.
Upper level ridging and dry air will give us nice weather through the weekend. Monday through Wednesday a slow moving upper level low will move through central Arizona and then New Mexico and give us a shot at scattered showers and thunderstorms.
Tonight through Sunday… I expect lots of sun and pleasant temps. A few cumulus clouds will build over the mountains in the afternoons, but there isn’t enough instability or moisture for them to grow into showers. We’ll see highs in the 70s and lows in the mid-20s to upper 30s. Afternoon winds will peak in the 20-25mph range.
Monday through Wednesday… Chance for scattered afternoon showers and thunderstorms. High temps will be in the mid-60s to low 70s and lows will be in the upper 20s to upper 30s. Afternoon winds will be less than 20mph, though stronger isolated gusts are possible near showers and thunderstorms.
