One of my favorite scenes along Piedra Road… Pic taken 4/15/2022

At Stevens Field the high temp yesterday afternoon was 64. The low this morning was 32. The peak wind at the airfield in the last 24 hours was 38mph.
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.
** Be careful with fire! Winds will get gusty in wind prone areas every afternoon between 11 and noon. **
Precip summary… There might have been a few “rainflakes” over the mountains yesterday evening, but they didn’t amount to anything.
Today through Thursday ridging stays over the region and gives us dry and windy weather.
The next system will move through Friday and Saturday. The northern mountains are favored – we will just get the scraps and wind.
** With all forecast products, we compare these to other products, compare them to recent events, compare them to our experience with similar systems during this time of year, consider how the system will interact with our terrain (a biggie!), and then make appropriate adjustments. **

Wolf Creek’s season ends today! Arleen will announce a contest winner this evening. It was close! The winner will get a $50 gift certificate for Ski and Bow Rack. The four runners up will get Ski and Bow Rack hats.
My next post will be on Tuesday unless something pops up.
