First sunlight on Cimarrona… Pic taken 12/18/2021
Saturday – 18 Dec 2021 – 9:00am
At Stevens Field the high temp in the last 24 hours was 33 and the low this morning is missing. Most of us were in the -5 to 5 range and the cold spots got down to -10. The peak wind at the airfield in the last 24 hours was 9mph.
There was no precip in the last 24 hours.
Through Wednesday afternoon… Upper level ridging will keep us dry with mostly clear skies.
Starting late Wednesday, 22 Dec through the rest of Christmas week and potentially through New Years, the weather pattern will get more active. The upper level ridge will flatten and sink south which will allow a more west to east progression of systems. Colorado won’t be in the bullseye, but we could see an extended period of unsettled weather.
The rest of today through Wednesday afternoon… We’ll see lots of sun and patches of occasional high clouds. Highs today and tomorrow will be in the 30s and lows will be -5 to 15. Highs Monday through Wednesday will be in the lower to mid-40s and lows will be 0 to 20.
Wednesday night through Christmas… We’ll see more clouds and periods of snow. The snow level will bounce around between 7,500ft and 8,000ft. Highs will be in the 30s and lows will be in the upper teens to upper 20s.
First guess snow totals…
The details are still sketchy. We’ll adjust the timing, snow amounts, and snow level as the data gets better.
Christmas to New Years… Looks like more snow. Do those snow dances!
