This weather is fantastic for hiking in the high country! – Pic taken 9/6/2021
Tuesday – 7 Sep 2021 – 10:25am
At Stevens Field the high yesterday was 84 and the low this morning was 44. Little Siberia, Mark’s house, had a low of 37… brrrr. When I checked temps at 6am this morning, they varied from 37 to 60 – crazy! The peak wind at the airfield was 22mph. There was no precip in the last 24 hours.
A strong high pressure is currently over the Great Basin and will slowly move southeast. By late Thursday it will be over the Four Corners and by Saturday it will be over central NM. The atmosphere will be dry and stable through Friday. By Saturday we’ll see a little more moisture and slightly more unstable flow from the southwest. Smoke from the California fires will be in and out of the area.
Today through Friday… There will be lots of sun and warm temps – we’ll flirt with record highs. Smoke from the California fires will be in and out of the area all week. Highs will be in the low 80s to upper 80s and lows will be upper 30s to upper 40s.
Saturday through Monday… There’s a slight chance for a spotty afternoon shower or thunderstorm, mostly over the mountains. High temps will cool a few degrees with highs in the upper 70s to mid-80s and lows will be 40-50.

With quiet weather expected this week, we’ll probably do a post every other day. My next post will be on Thursday.
The weather is nice… too nice.
The historical data here (presumably for Sept 7) shows a record high of 87. It felt right about the hot today (the 8th). Are we breaking records this week? Would love to see a recap at some point to check on the skipped days.
