A few Army helicopters passed through Pagosa Country yesterday. I spent most of my military career providing weather forecasts to these fine folks! Pic taken 10/20/2021

At Stevens Field the high yesterday was 57 and so far today it’s been 59. The low this morning was 27. The cold spots have dipped into the upper teens to low 20s the last two mornings. The peak wind was 9mph.
There was no significant precip in the last 24 hours.
A series of storms is going to hit the West Coast but the storms will weaken as they move through Colorado. Our first bit of scraps will be Saturday night with a few snowshowers possible in the mountains. The second bit of scraps will be a little stronger, but I still don’t expect much when it moves through Monday night and Tuesday.
Unfortunately I don’t see any decent storms for us the rest of the month. Let’s hope something pops up!
Tomorrow through Monday afternoon… We’ll see periods of mid and high level clouds and stay dry. Saturday night is the exception with a few more clouds and spotty showers over the mountains. Snow accumulations will be under an inch.
Highs will be mid-50s to mid-60s and lows will be low 20s to the mid-30s.
Winds will be under 20mph except Saturday afternoon when gusts to 25mph are likely.
Monday evening and Tuesday… We’ll see more clouds and spotty showers. The best chance for precip is Monday at midnight to Tuesday at noon.
Highs Tuesday will be in the upper 40s to mid-50s and lows Tuesday night will be in the upper teens to upper 20s. Winds will peak in the 25-30mph range.
Below 8,000ft: dusting
Above 8,000ft in the valley: up to an inch
Above 10,000ft: 2-4”
