Yesterday started dreary and finished nice. This is the San Juan River in New Mexico… Pic taken 4/4/2022
Tuesday – 5 Apr 2022 – 10:00am
At Stevens Field the high temp yesterday afternoon was 50. The low this morning was 30. The peak wind at the airfield in the last 24 hours was 8mph.
Precip summary… Wolf Creek reported 5” from yesterday’s system.
Today 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.
Our next system will impact us Monday through Wednesday. In fact, we could see a couple of powder days up at Wolf Creek!
The next system is still 7 days out and the models are all over the place with the details. The NBM is a rough average of the models and looks reasonable at this point. As always, we’ll narrow down precip and timing as the system nears.

Unless something unexpected happens, I’m skipping tomorrow so my next post will be on Thursday. The Thursday post will include today’s peak winds.
