It was great to measure snow this morning! Pic taken 11/24/2021
Wednesday – 24 Nov 2021 – 8:30am
At Stevens Field the high yesterday was 49 and the low this morning was 33. Most of us were in the lower to mid-30s this morning. The peak wind at the airfield in the last 24 hours was 16mph.
Precip in the last 24 hours: I don’t have many reports yet this morning but the average snowfall is in the 0.5” to 1.5” range. The snow lottery winners got around 2.5”. Wolf Creek reported 4” this morning.
The main part of the system has moved through. The upper level trough is still to our northwest and will move through our area this evening. Moisture is limited with the trough but we’ll see spotty snowshowers, mostly over the mountains, until it moves through.
Then pesky ridging and drier northwest flow will give us pleasant weather for the next 7-10 days.
Today… Fog will break up in the next couple of hours. Clouds will also gradually break up through the day. Spotty snowshowers will linger into the evening, mostly over the mountains. A spotty dusting is possible in the valley and up to an inch is possible in the mountains.
It will be cooler with highs in the lower to mid-40s and lows Thanksgiving morning will be mostly in the 5 to 15 degree range… brrrr!
Thanksgiving through Monday… We’ll see quite a bit of sun with occasional periods of mid and high clouds. Tomorrow morning patchy thick fog will develop in the low lying areas for a few hours. I don’t expect any precip for the next 7-10 days.
On Thanksgiving highs will be in the lower to mid-40s and lows will be in the upper single digits to the upper teens. Friday through Sunday highs will be in the lower to upper 50s and lows will be the lower teens to lower 20s.
