Ditto weather continues…

Pagosa Trails

I shot this with my drone yesterday afternoon near the Coyote Loop Trail. It’s cool to see the cross-country groomed trail as well as elk and human tracks in the snow.

1-13-22: 9:30am update…

The low this morning at Stevens Field was 15 and the high yesterday was 41 degrees. There was no precipitation recorded in our area.

Not much to talk about as snow chances have essentially gone “poof” for Pagosa Springs. There could be a few snow showers in the mountains on Friday as a cold front moves through. Winds will gust to 30mph in the mountains Friday afternoon and Saturday with wind chill values dropping to around 0, so if you are going skiing you might want to reconsider dressing in only your shorts and tee shirt!

As of this post, the models are looking dry and quiet for at least the next week. There could be some activity brewing around the end of the month, but as we have discussed before, long range models are not to be trusted! At some point we will certainly get back to an active pattern again.

The latest NWS snowfall forecast model shows where you might find a little snow over the next 36 hours…there could be a light dusting for our mountains.

My forecast…

The rest of today: Partly cloudy skies with a high in the upper 40’s. Winds will be out of the SE 5-10mph.

Friday–Saturday: Partly cloudy with a slight chance for snow showers in the mountains with lows in the single digits and teens and highs in the upper 30’s to low 40’s. Look 0-1/2 inch for the mountains. Winds will be out of the NE 10-15mph

SundayWednesday: Mostly sunny with lows in the single digits and teens and highs in the low 40’s.

My next post will be on Saturday the 15th.
