My wind turbine has been cranking out the megawatts lately thanks to our daily winds! I still don’t understand why our POA has an issue with my wind turbine. Partially manipulated photo by Mark Langford
4-13-22 9:15am update…
The low today at Stevens Field has been 19 degrees. My thermometer in “Little Siberia”, about a mile north of Hatcher Lake dropped to 8 degrees, which would have tied for a record low for the day if it had been at the airport.
I recorded only 0.06 inches of rain-snow combo at our home from this storm, about a mile north of Hatcher Lake. Below are some COCORAHS reports from yesterday morning through this morning. Wolf Creek reported a storm total of only 3 inches.
Over the next couple of days, the main weather headline will be windy and cold! Even with some sunshine, most of us will not see temps over the upper 30’s for highs today. Our winds have been bringing in lots of dust over the past several days. Yesterday’s precipitation created a very dirty deck on both sides of our home and our southern facing windows looked like someone had flung mud on them. Look for another colder than normal night ahead for Thursday morning, then a gradual warming trend along with less wind by Friday. By this weekend, we should be back to highs in the 60’s with only our normal 10-15mph winds. High pressure will now dominate our pattern for at least 6-10 days.
My next post will be on Friday unless something meteorologically bizarre occurs!
