Fresh snow in the high country and spots of fall colors are hanging on – it’s beautiful! Pic taken 10/15/2021

At Stevens Field the high yesterday was 50 and the low this morning was 25. Some spots were in the upper teens this morning. The peak wind was 9mph.
Yesterday morning there were a few spots in the low teens, but I didn’t see any upper single digits like I forecast.
There was no significant precip in the last 24 hours.
Today and tomorrow will be sunny with warmer temps as a ridge builds over the region. A weak trough will try to move through Sunday night and early Monday and then an even weaker one will move through Tuesday, otherwise it looks like we’re “stuck” with nice dry weather for at least the next 7 days.
Today and most of tomorrow… We’ll see lots of bright sunny skies and warmer temps – it’s going to be nice! Highs will be in the mid-50s to mid-60s and lows will be around 20 to the lower 30s. Winds will be less than 20mph.
Tomorrow evening through Monday morning… There will be a few more clouds and a few spotty showers, mostly over the mountains. A few lucky spots in the mountains could get an inch of snow. Wolf Creek Pass could have slick spots Monday morning.
Monday afternoon through Saturday… The glorious fall weather will continue! Expect lots of sun and chilly mornings. There will be a few more clouds Tuesday, but we won’t see any precip.
Highs will be mid-50s to low 60s and lows will be upper teens to low 30s. (I don’t like forecasting big temp ranges but it’s common this time of year with our elevation differences.)
Winds Monday afternoon will peak around 25mph.
