Looking down the road

11-4-21: 3:30 pm update…

Since there isn’t much to talk about in the short term, let’s look down the road towards the middle of the month. As of today, the latest long range forecast is for more of the same. A cold front moving through on Tuesday night of next week could bring us some light snow, but other than that, we are looking at temperatures running slightly above normal and chances of precipitation running below normal through the 18th. Of course weather tends to have a mind of its own, so just because the models are looking dry today does not mean we couldn’t see a shift to wetter and colder by tomorrows runs.

My next update will be on Saturday…enjoy this weather!

Here is the latest drought update issued today. Not much change from last week…Pagosa Springs is in the “Abnormally Dry” zone but the county ranges from “Abnormally Dry-Extreme Drought” depending on where you live. As Shawn likes to remind us, we probably won’t see much change until next spring when we know how much snow fell over the winter.
