High pressure continues to dominate!

Cross country

Some cross-country skiers appear to be attempting to get the attention of their furry ski buddy along Coyote Loop Trail.

1-15-22: 3:30pm update…

The low this morning at Stevens Field was 6 degrees and the high so far today has been 39 degrees. There was no precipitation recorded in our area.

Our tranquil winter weather continues as high pressure dominates our current weather pattern. A decent looking low pressure off the CA coast will essentially go “poof” as it gets absorbed into our NW flow aloft. There is a tiny chance for some light snow in the mountains and Pagosa Springs on Wednesday night, but at this point, it looks to be nothing more entertaining than flurries or amounts just above a trace. Some of the very long-range models continue to hint at a pattern change toward the end of the month, but for at least the next 8-14 days I don’t see any major storm impacting our area. Don’t give up though, as models have been known to dramatically reverse gears in the past. I’m hoping Shawn can find some snow when he takes over tomorrow!

We will continue to be in the “Leaning Below” zone for precipitation for at least the next 8-14 days.
