Downtown Pagosa Springs this morning… Jim Smith Realty cam 3/10/2022 at 6:30am
Thursday – 10 Mar 2022 – 10:00am
At Stevens Field the high temp yesterday afternoon was 35. The low this morning was 22. The peak wind at the airfield in the last 24 hours was 27mph.
Precip summary… Spotty snowshowers yesterday didn’t amount to anything in the valley. Heavier snow started across much of the county this morning between 4 and 5am. Roads across the region are slick. Of course, it was a different story up at Wolf Creek where steady snow fell much of the last 24 hours resulting in 9”.
The upper level trough will move through shortly after midnight. As the trough sinks southeast towards AZ, the best energy and moisture will slip to our south this evening. I expect Chromo and Chama to get a little more snow than Pagosa.
Friday through at least Tuesday, a ridge will build back over the region and keep us dry.
*** The Grand Junction NWS has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for the southwest San Juan Mountains valid until 11pm tonight for an additional 3-7” of snow with higher amounts possible around Wolf Creek Pass. ***
