Yes, I know this is not Pagosa Springs, but I thought it would be cool to post an image I shot 4 years ago at Arches National Park in Utah…a great place for photos! Photo by Mark Langford
3-24-22 10:00am update…
The low this morning at Stevens Field was 24 degrees and the high yesterday was 48. There was no precipitation recorded for our area.
High pressure and lots of sunshine will allow our afternoon temperatures to begin exceeding 60 degrees for the first time this year, starting as early as today for downtown and lower elevations in our county. By this weekend, all of us should see mid-60s and even a few upper 60s for highs. Fortunately, those biting northerly winds will begin to ease today to 10-15mph and by tomorrow will switch to the SW, 5-10 mph.
Long range models are starting to look promising for a week-long active pattern, beginning next week as our current ridge moves east and a trough digs into California allowing our mid-level flow to switch to the SW, which is always a good thing for us! At this time, it looks like the first system will arrive on Monday night and Tuesday with a combination of snow, rain and even a thunderstorm thrown in for fun.
Enjoy the spring weather…my next post will be on Saturday.
