First morning sun on the Rio Grande Pyramid… Pic taken 4/7/2022
Thursday – 7 Apr 2022 – 12:15pm
At Stevens Field the high temp yesterday afternoon was 55. The low this morning was 21. The cold spots got down to 11. The peak wind at the airfield in the last 24 hours was 27mph.
Peak winds on Tuesday…
Stevens Field: 38mph
Most locations around Pagosa Springs peaked in the 30-35mph range.
Precip summary… There was no precip in the last 24 hours.
The rest of the week will be mostly sunny, and winds will be a bit lighter as ridging remains in control through Friday.
Saturday and Sunday the ridge will flatten and move to our east. Upper level southwest flow will increase and push some moisture into the area and cause gustier winds.
Our next system will impact us Monday night through Wednesday morning with more clouds and scattered showers. The snow level will start around 8,500ft Monday evening and will gradually drop to 6,000ft by late Tuesday evening. As the snow level drops, moisture and precip will be decreasing which will limit snow amounts in the valley.
The models continue to be inconsistent with precip amounts so forecast confidence is still shaky.
