Word of the day is “ephemeral” – this is our ephemeral stream, another sure sign of spring!… Pic taken 3/26/2022
Sunday – 26 Mar 2022 – 9:45am
At Stevens Field the high temp yesterday afternoon was 66. The low this morning was 30. The peak wind at the airfield yesterday afternoon was 24mph.
Precip summary… There was none in the last 24 hours.
The ridge axis will move over our heads today – keep an eye out for the big blue jagged line in the sky! (See the satellite picture below.)
Behind the ridge axis, upper level southwest flow and moisture will gradually increase. Precip is likely Monday night and Tuesday as the first system moves through. The snow level will start around 9,500ft and then lower to around 7,400ft by sunrise on Tuesday. A dusting of snow could stick on cold surfaces in town while folks above 7,500ft could get up to inch of snow.
Spotty showers and an isolated thunderstorm are possible Wednesday and Thursday afternoons mostly over the mountains. The snow level will bounce around between 6,500ft and 8,500ft. All types of precip are possible: rain, snow, graupel, and small hail. If you don’t like the weather, just a wait a few minutes and it will change!
Showers will ramp up Thursday night and Friday as the second system moves through. The snow level will bounce around between 6,500ft and 8,500ft again.
