The San Juan Sled Dogs love the new snow!… Pic taken 2/25/2022
Saturday – 26 Feb 2022 – 9:00am
At Stevens Field the high temp yesterday afternoon was 34. The low this morning was 1. Most of us saw lows between -5 and 10. The coldest spot was the upper Piedra with a low of -19.5! The peak wind at the airfield in the last 24 hours was 17mph.
Precip in the last 24 hours… None
Upper level ridging will keep us dry and gradually warm us up through Thursday.
Thursday night and Friday a weak system will move through. It might start on the warm side with the dreaded “r” word in the valley. This system is still 5-6 days out, so details are sketchy.
The models agree that the pattern will stay active beyond Friday, but they’re all over the place with the details.
*** There is a SPECIAL AVALANCHE ADVISORY out through the weekend. Avalanche conditions are dangerous! ***
Today through Thursday afternoon… Skies will vary from clear to partly cloudy.
Temps… Today highs will be in the lower to upper 30s and lows will be -5 to 15. Sunday and Monday highs will be in the mid to upper 40s and lows will be 5-20. Tuesday through Thursday highs will be in the upper 40s to mid-50s and lows will be 10-25.
Thursday night and Friday… We’ll see more clouds and a chance for precip. It’s too early to get into details. Mark will figure that out!
Beyond Friday… The pattern could stay active for a while.
