At Stevens Field the high temp this afternoon was 41 and the low this morning was 16. I saw temps down to 5 this morning.The peak wind at the airfield was 11mph just after midnight last night when the trough moved through.
Precip in the last 24 hours… A trace of snow fell in parts of the valley. Wolf Creek reported 2”.
Most of the storm energy and moisture from last night’s system stayed north and east of us.
Another weak system lacking moisture will move through CO from the northwest on Tuesday. Strong ridging to the west will keep us dry the rest of the week.
The long range pattern continues to look more active the first week of February.
Tonight through Monday… We’ll see lots of sun with occasional patches of mid and upper level clouds. Highs will be in the lower to mid-40s and lows will be 5 to 20.
Tuesday… We’ll see more clouds and a few spotty snowshowers. Highs will be in the upper 30s to lower 40s and lows will be 0 to 20.
– Valley: a dusting
– Mountains: 1-2”
Wednesday through Friday… Expect lots of blue sky with occasional patches of mid and high level clouds. Highs will be upper 30s to mid-40s and lows will be 5 to 20.
Long range… Forecast models continue to agree that the pattern will get more active, but they keep delaying it. Now it’s looks more like the 31st or 1st. Keep those positive vibes going and do those snow dances!
