No clouds this morning – just a few geese and the Rio Grande Pyramid! Pic taken 9/5/2021

At Stevens Field the high yesterday was 80 and the low this morning was 43. Little Siberia, Mark’s house, had a low of 36… brrrr. The peak wind at the airfield was 21mph. There was no precip in the last 24 hours.
A strong high pressure will sit over the Great Basin most of the week. Northwest to northerly flow aloft will keep the atmosphere dry and stable. Smoke from the California fires will be in and out of the area.
When will the pattern change? By Sunday or Monday, the models hint that the high pressure will weaken and move to our east allowing upper level southwest flow and more moisture to move into the area. That far out, I don’t trust the models so we’re in the “we’ll keep an eye on it” mode.
Today through Saturday… We’ll see lots of sun and pleasant temps. Smoke from the California fires will be in and out of the area all week. Highs will be upper 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 Tuesday.
