Forecast discussion…

The trough moved through earlier this afternoon.  Showers popped up over the mountains and a good band of showers and thunderstorms developed over parts of southeastern Archuleta County and moved south.  Winds got gusty behind the trough this afternoon.

Thursday afternoon scattered showers will start over the mountains and then become more widespread by midnight.  We’ll see on and off showers until the trough moves through Friday morning. The snow level will bounce around between 6,500ft and 8,500ft.

Saturday through Sunday morning ridging will build over the region and give us sunny skies and seasonal temps.

Sunday afternoon clouds will increase ahead of another weak system. A few spotty showers will pop up over the mountains in the afternoon and become more widespread after midnight.

Satellite this afternoon: The trough moved through earlier this afternoon. The Thursday night system is moving through ID and NV.  It doesn’t have much moisture and won’t pick up much more before it moves through our area.

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!
