A slow warming trend with lots of sunshine!

Weatherperson Day

Today is our day…not just those of us who work on this page, but you! If you have ever posted your weather information on this website, Facebook or COCORAHS, you are a weatherperson.

2-5-22-2:30pm update…

The low this morning at Stevens Field before their weather sensor shut down due to cold temperatures (very frustrating) was 3 degrees, but most of us saw lows below zero again. Our home about a mile north of Hatcher Lake dropped to -8 and Shawn and Arleen’s sensor dropped to -10. The high so far today has been 33 degrees. There was no precipitation recorded in our area.

A ridge of high pressure has decided to camp out over the west for the foreseeable future, so any odds of precipitation will be close to nil for at least a week, if not more. Temperatures will slowly rise from below normal to above normal by the end of the week. Expect a lot of sunshine this week!

The long-range models continue to give us some hope for a pattern change around the 17-19th of February, but since we are almost two weeks away, it’s hard to get very excited yet.

The latest GFS meteogram model run is predicting some activity for around the 18th or 19th of February, but being 2 weeks away we have to take these models with at least 2-3 grains of salt at this point!

The latest EURO 15 day forecast also gives up some hope, but if you look at the blue lines on the graphics, it indicates we could get anywhere from zero to a foot of snow. Not very convincing yet!

The latest 8-14 day precipitation forecast puts us in the “Leaning Above” zone. That goes along with some of the long-range models as well.

  1. With La Niña again in control, do our local conditions still reflect a positive snowpack? Is NOAA able to predict potential run-off at this early date – I know run-off was low for the snowpack we had last year so I’m concerned that the same thing might occur this year.
