My Pagosa Weather yardstick and 4-foot measuring stick combo that I attached to the cattle fence behind our home are still registering 25 inches of snowpack as of this post despite the warm afternoons!
2-11-22. 2:30pm update…
The low this morning at Stevens Field was 14 and the high so far today has been 47. We could see some temps in our area exceed 50 degrees this afternoon! There was no precipitation recorded in our area.
A cold front and trough are giving the front range some snow today and tomorrow. For us, only a tiny chance for some light snow in the mountains tonight and slightly cooler temps on Saturday. By this weekend a trough digs into the Pacific NW, potentially setting us up for a chance for snow next week. The hope is for an upper-level low to form in a position that will switch our mid-level winds into a SW flow. If this all comes together, look for snow to fall from Wednesday-Thursday of next week. As of this post, 1-2 inches for the valley and 3-6 inches of snow for the mountains seems reasonable.

The rest of today: Sunny with a high in the upper 40’s to low 50’s. South winds 5-10 mph.
Tonight: Clear with lows ranging from the single digits to the teens. Our mountains could see a few snow showers.
Saturday: Mostly sunny with highs in the low to mid 40’s and lows in the single digits to low teens.
Sunday-Tuesday: Mostly sunny with highs in the mid to upper 40’s and lows in the single digits to low teens.
Wednesday-Thursday: Mostly cloudy with a chance for snow showers. Lows in the teens and highs in the upper 30’s to low 40’s.
Shawn will do the next post on Sunday unless something completely meteorologically random occurs.
