Fishing was slow yesterday but the weather was great!… Pic taken 4/8/2022
Saturday – 9 Apr 2022 – 10:45am
At Stevens Field the high temp yesterday afternoon was 62. The low this morning was 27. The peak wind at the airfield in the last 24 hours was 23mph.
By the way, it’s wind season. Wind prone areas will see gusty afternoon winds more often than naught until the monsoon starts to set up in mid-June.
Precip summary… There was no precip in the last 24 hours.
Today and tomorrow the ridge will flatten and move to our east. Upper level southwest flow will increase and push more clouds into the area and cause gustier winds. A stray afternoon shower or two is possible over the mountains.
Our next system will impact us Monday night through Wednesday morning with more clouds, scattered showers, and gusty winds. The snow level will start around 10,000ft Monday evening, and then drop to 7,600ft by Tuesday morning, and finally down to 6,000ft Tuesday evening. As the snow level drops, moisture and precip will be decreasing which will limit snow amounts in the valley.
*** Driving conditions will be bad in the mountains on Tuesday. ***
Wednesday the trough will move through in the early morning and clouds will gradually clear. Scattered snowshowers will linger over the mountains. It will be chilly with high temps 15-20 degrees below average and add 20-30mph winds and we’ll forget what month it is!
