We have some TC’s (towering cumulus) forming this afternoon…soon to be storms!
7-26-21: 1pm update…
Not much change (nor will there be this week) since my post on Sunday except that the low pressure has now reached southern California and is giving that area some badly needed rain this morning. With the low out of the way, our moist surface and mid levels of the atmosphere will allow for afternoon and evening pop up storms. These tend to move very little so if one happens to build up over you, you can quickly get a half inch or more of rain in a very short time period.
Most of us got at least some rainfall yesterday as seen in the rain graphics below.
The rest of today…A good chance for scattered afternoon storms with highs in the upper 70s. Look for very little movement in storms today. Rainfall totals will range from 0-0.50.
Tuesday-Friday: Continued good chances for afternoon thunderstorms. As is the case with convective activity, there will be rain lottery winners and losers. Each day we could see 0-0.50 inches of rain with double that total in the mountains. Lows will remain in the upper 40’s to low 50’s and highs in the upper 70’s.
For any of you visiting our area, watch out for rapidly changing weather conditions when storms move in! Temps can drop 20 degrees in minutes, winds can gust to 40mph and lightning and small hail is always a possibility.
Check out my Pagosa Peak Cam (myearthcam.com) for watching hikers, bikers and of course, the weather.
