The past…

At Stevens Field the high temp yesterday afternoon was 61. The low this morning was 34. The peak wind at the airfield in the last 24 hours was 25mph.

Precip summary… A few showers have moved over the mountains, but I haven’t seen anything in the valley.

Forecast discussion…

Skies will stay mostly cloudy today ahead of another weak system. Spotty showers and an isolated thunderstorm will continue over the mountains this afternoon and become more widespread after midnight. Occasional showers and a thunderstorm or two are possible until Monday afternoon when the trough moves through.

On Tuesday a strong jet stream out of the northwest will result in partly cloudy skies and gusty winds. The rest of the week will be mostly sunny, and winds will gradually decrease as ridging takes over.

Satellite this afternoon: The weak trough is over NV southern CA and moving east. There isn’t much moisture – that’s mostly mid and upper level clouds.

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!
