Forecast discussion…

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.

Water vapor satellite: The trough draped across western UT will move through our area around midnight.  It doesn’t have much moisture but will kick up scattered snowshowers.

My forecast…

NBM snowfall through Thursday at 11pm shows 5.7” in town and 10-16” in our mountains.  This lines up with my thoughts at this time.

I’ve been a “weather geek” since I was young child. I joined the military out of high school and was lucky to get my dream job in weather. I have 20 years of military weather experience which includes forecasting the weather all over the world. Highlights were six years in Alaska and making life and death weather decisions during deployments. I love mountains, I love snow, and I love summertime thunderstorms. I spend a bunch of time playing outdoors and found my paradise in Pagosa Springs. I do Pagosa Weather as a community service. Hopefully you find us helpful!
