At Stevens Field the high yesterday was 70 and the low this morning was 50. The peak wind at the airfield was 7mph. There were more clouds than expected this morning and lows were 5-7 warmer than I forecast.
24-hour precip amounts are disappointing. A band of showers developed in the Telluride/Ridgway area, but there was very little activity on our side of the mountains.
The atmosphere is drying and stabilizing as flow gradually turns more westerly. Today there is still a narrow band of moisture in our area so a shower or thunderstorm is possible this afternoon over the mountains. Most of the week will be sunny with pleasant temps. As flow turns more westerly and then northwesterly, smoke from the California fires will be in and out of the area.
Today through Thursday… A spotty shower or thunderstorm is possible over the mountains today, otherwise I expect lots of sun and dry weather this week. Smoke from the California fires will be in and out of the area all week. Highs will be mid-70s to mid-80s and lows will be upper 30s to upper 40s.

With quiet weather expected this week, we’ll probably do a post every other day. My next post will be on Sunday.
