Some cross-country skiers enjoying the last rays of sunlight from a couple of days ago along the Coyote Loop Trail.
1-09-22: 2:30pm update…
The low this morning at Stevens Field was 19 and the high so far has been 36 degrees.
Those of us who have cleaned out our COCORAHS gauges and melted the snow reported anywhere from 0.20-0.80 of snowfall and 0.02-0.03 of liquid from yesterday’s wimpy storm. Wolf Creek Ski area reports 4 inches of snow over the past 24 hours.
If you are looking for some pristine winter weather, you picked the perfect week for it! For the most part, this week will see above normal temperatures along with our perma-blue skies. As we head into the latter half of the week, clouds will be on the increase as our next storm moves through on Thursday night-Saturday. As of this post, Shawn’s forecast from yesterday still looks valid with 1-3 inches for the valley and 3-6 inches for the mountains. This is a very complicated storm (and which storms are not?) so I will be posting updates throughout the week as the models get their acts together. As of right now, this storm looks nothing like the storms we saw between Christmas and New Year.
For those of you who like to “hear” our forecast, we are currently experimenting with a “dial up and text” forecast. Call 877-841-0247 and give it a try! Let us know what you think…
This afternoon: Clear skies with a high in the mid to upper 30’s. Winds will be out of the NE 5-10mph.
Monday-Thursday: Mostly sunny with lows in the single digits and teens and highs in the mid to upper 40’s… shorts weather for some of us!
Thursday Night–Saturday: A chance for snow showers each day with lows in the teens and 20’s and highs in the 30’s. Look for 1-3 inches of snow for the valley and 3-6 inches for the mountains.
