The pups love the snow!… Pic taken 3/6/2022
Monday – 7 Mar 2022 – 10:25am
At Stevens Field the high temp yesterday afternoon was 28. The low last night was 7. I saw temps down to -6 in the cold spots. The peak wind at the airfield in the last 24 hours was 18mph. We hit 22mph in O’Neal Park. We also had thick fog at times last night.
Precip summary… Two-day storm totals in the valley range from 2.5” to 9.3”. Wolf Creek reported another 11” in the last 24 hours and 23” for the storm. As of midnight last night, the Wolf Creek summit snotel is at 125% and the Upper San Juan snotel is at 97%. Our nearby basins sit at 101%.
A weak trough will move through around midnight. Though it lacks moisture, it will kick up scattered snowshowers this afternoon and evening, especially over the mountains.
Ridging will dry us out and give us sunny skies on Tuesday.
Wednesday afternoon into Thursday evening the next system will move through the area and bring another round of snow.
