The smoke isn’t bad when there are views like this in the high country. Pic taken 9/10/2021

At Stevens Field the high yesterday was 87 and the low this morning was 46. Little Siberia, Mark’s house, had a low of 37… brrrr. The peak wind at the airfield was 20mph. There was no precip in the last 24 hours.
Temps are still flirting with record highs. The record high yesterday, 10 Sep, is 88 set in 1945. The airfield hit 87 yesterday – oh so close.
The upper level high is currently centered over northeast NM. Upper level southwest flow will bring us a little more moisture and slightly more unstable flow through Tuesday. There is a very slight chance for an afternoon shower or thunderstorm over the mountains, especially Tuesday when a weak trough moves through. The atmosphere will dry out and stabilize the rest of the week.
Saturday through Tuesday… I expect us to be dry in the valley, but there’s a slight chance for a spotty afternoon shower or thunderstorm over the mountains. Temps will still be warm with highs around 80 to the upper 80s. Lows will be in the upper 30s to upper 40s. Afternoon winds will peak in the 20-25mph range.
Wednesday through Friday… Lots of sun, dry, and pleasant temps. Highs will be in the upper 70s to mid-80s and lows will be in the mid-30s to upper 40s. Afternoon winds will peak around 20mph.
