Mesa Arch. Another one of my vacation photos from last week from Canyonlands National Park. This is a great time of the year to visit Arches, Bryce, Zion and Canyonlands…

A shout out to Shawn’s October summery from this morning! If you haven’t read it, please check it out.
An inbound shortwave will be moving into our area tomorrow morning giving us a chance for some slight rain and some possible snow showers from 5am-5pm. As is usually the case around here, the higher in elevation you are, the better chance you will have to see some showers. Since this storm system will be moving through during the day, don’t worry about any road issues in Pagosa Springs but drive carefully if you are heading over Wolf Creek Pass. There are no watches or warnings out for Wolf Creek Pass and I would be surprised to see more than 1-2 inches of snow out of this storm, but even a couple of inches of snow can make driving tricky if temps are below freezing.
Once this system moves through we are back to ditto weather the rest of the week with a NW flow aloft. Precipitation will be hugging California and the Pacific NW this week…a very typical La Niña setup. For all of you hunters waiting on a big snow event to drive the elk out of the mountains, you may have to be patient…it could be the last half of November before we see a big storm around here.
The rest of today…Partly cloudy this afternoon, turning mostly cloudy by sunset. Highs will be in the mid to upper 50s with SW winds in the 5-15mph range.
Tuesday: Mostly cloudy with a chance for light rain and some snow showers. Lows will be in the 20’s and highs in the low 50’s. If you get more than 0.05 of precipitation consider yourself lucky! Our mountains could pick up 1/2-2 inches of snow. Winds will turn out of the SW 10-15mph with gusts to over 20mph in the afternoon.
Wednesday-Sunday: Partly cloudy through this period with highs in the 50’s and lows in the 20’s.
