A spot of sunshine on the mountains this morning… Pic taken 3/6/2022
Sunday – 6 Mar 2022 – 12:15pm
At Stevens Field the high temp yesterday afternoon was 37. The low last night was 21. The peak wind at the airfield in the last 24 hours was 18mph.
Precip in the last 24 hours… Most reports this morning were in the 3-6” range. Even our friends down in Ignacio and Arboles were at that the top of that range! Wolf Creek reported 10” in the last 24 hours. It’s been snowing pretty good up there most of the morning, so their afternoon report will have more.
The upper level low is spinning south of Farmington and moving slowly east. When the low gets to our southeast around sunset, flow will switch to north and snowshowers will taper off.
A weak trough will move through late tomorrow evening, but it won’t have much moisture. It will kick up scattered snowshowers from sunrise to sunset, especially over the mountains.
Ridging will dry us out and give us sunny skies on Tuesday.
Wednesday afternoon into Thursday afternoon the next system will move through the area and bring another round of snow.

Hello Peggy! This is a great question and a good reminder that Google searches are sometimes questionable.
The official data is archived by the Western Regional Climate Center – WRCC. Here’s the link to the daily data: https://wrcc.dri.edu/cgi-bin/cliRECt.pl?copago. And here’s the link to see the summary data: https://wrcc.dri.edu/csc/scenic/analysis/single/climatology/?area_type=station_id&station_id=PAGOSA%20SPRINGS%201SE,056258&start_date=1906-01-01&end_date=2020-12-06.
I have noticed inconsistencies so the data isn’t perfect, but it’s the best we’ve got.
Thanks again for the great question! – Shawn
