At Stevens Field the high yesterday was 61 and the low this morning was 32. The cold spots have dipped into the mid to upper 20s the last two mornings. The peak wind was 24mph.
There was no precip in the last 24 hours.
The scraps of the West Coast “atmospheric river” event will move into our area tonight and tomorrow. Moisture will increase and we’ll see mostly rain in the valley and snow in the mountains.
Ridging will build into the area the rest of the week and give us lots of sun and seasonal temps.
Things are looking pretty quiet into the first week of November.
Today… There will be lots of sun with a few clouds and then clouds will increase this evening. Highs will be lower to upper 60s and lows will be lower 30s to lower 40s. Winds will peak in the 20-25mph range.
Tonight and tomorrow… We’ll see more clouds and occasional showers. The best chance for precip is early tomorrow morning to tomorrow afternoon. Initially the snow level will be around 11,000ft and then drop to 8,000 by Tuesday evening. By the time the snow level drops to 8,000ft, precip will be ending. An isolated thunderstorm is also possible.
Highs Tuesday will be in the lower 40s to around 50 and lows Tuesday night will be in the mid-teens to upper 20s. Winds will peak in the 25-35mph range.
Below 8,500ft in the valley: mostly rain with a few “rainflakes” and no accumulation
Above 10,000ft: 3-6”
*** The Pueblo NWS has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for the eastern San Juans above 10,000ft which includes Wolf Creek Pass. It’s valid from 6am Tuesday morning to midnight Tuesday. Up to 6” of snow is possible with winds to 50mph. *** Driving conditions on Wolf Creek Pass will be poor tomorrow.
Wednesday through Friday… Expect lots of sun. Temps will be the coolest Wednesday with highs in the lower to upper 50s and lows in the upper teens to upper 20s. Thursday and Friday highs will be in the upper 50s to mid-60s and lows will be lower 20s to mid-30s.
