An evening shower over our mountains last night. – Pic taken 6/25/2021 around 7:45pm
Saturday – 26 Jun 2021 – 4:10pm
At Stevens Field the high yesterday was 75 and the low this morning was 42. Yesterday’s peak wind was 45mph. Some lucky folks got around 0.10” of precip yesterday.
*** There is not a Red Flag Warning out for Archuleta County. Even if a Red Flag Warning is not issued, consider the fire danger extremely high. ***
Moisture is in place and we’ll stay unstable for the at least the next 7-10 days. The current pattern with the giant high pressure centered over British Columbia could transition into a monsoon pattern for us – good news!
I’m concerned the first few thunderstorms will spark new fires, so keep an eye out for smoke. With some luck enough rain might fall to decrease fire danger – yay!
Today through Friday… Clouds will build each day as we warm up. The best chance for showers and thunderstorms will be 2 to 6pm, however they are possible anytime, especially over the mountains. Brief periods of heavy rain, small hail, gusty winds, lightning are likely.
Highs will be 70-80 and lows will be upper 30s to upper 40s.
Afternoon winds will peak in the 20-25mph range, though isolated convective gusts to 45mph are possible near showers and thunderstorms.
