Purple morning sky over Graham Peak – Pic taken 10/29/2021
Friday – 29 Oct 2021 – 9:05am
At Stevens Field the high yesterday was 58 and the low this morning was 27. The peak wind in the last 24 hours was 8mph.
There was no precip in the last 24 hours.
Ridging will keep our weather nice through the weekend with lots of sun and seasonal temps.
Then the weather pattern becomes more active, but weak. A couple of systems will try to move through the ridge and fall apart as they near us. It will be unsettled with more clouds and occasional periods of light precip, but I don’t expect much.
Things are more in doubt by Thursday and Friday. Some forecast models show a decent storm while others show almost nothing.
Today through Sunday… Expect lots of sun. Highs will be in the upper 50s to mid-60s and lows will be in the lower 20s to mid-30s. Winds will stay under 20mph today and tomorrow and then peak in the 20-25mph range Sunday afternoon.
Monday through Wednesday… There will be more clouds and periods with spotty showers, mostly over the mountains.
The mountains will get 1-2” of snow by Wednesday night. We’ll be lucky to get a dusting in the valley.
Highs will be in the upper 40s to mid-50s and lows will be in the lower 20s to lower 30s.
At this point I think the Euro is over-forecasting snow amounts and I favor the NBM. Let’s hope I’m wrong and the Euro is right!

I’ll keep an eye on the weather and do a post if something pops up, otherwise Mark will take over on Sunday.
