A golden sunset over Pagosa Country… Pic taken 4/18/2022
Tuesday – 19 Apr 2022 – 3:00pm
At Stevens Field the high temp yesterday afternoon was 68. The low this morning was 33. The peak wind at the airfield yesterday afternoon was 28mph. As of 2:35pm, the peak wind so far today is 35mph.
** Be careful with fire! Winds will get gusty in wind prone areas every afternoon between 11 and noon. **
Precip summary… There has been no recent precip.
Today through Thursday a flat ridge will stay over the region and give us dry and windy weather.
The next system will move through Friday and Saturday. Clouds, winds, and scattered showers will increase Friday afternoon. The snow level will start around 9,500ft and then drop down to 7,000ft by sunrise on Saturday. Unfortunately, the northern mountains are favored – we’ll just get the scraps and wind.
** Like 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. **

A couple of exciting things to announce…
We are now the official CoCoRaHS representatives for Archuleta County! We will recruit more CoCoRaHS volunteers, help with training, answer questions, and provide the best data in Colorado!
We also have three presentations coming up: Pagosa Springs Middle School, San Juan Outdoor Club, and the Ruby M. Sisson Memorial Library. Our presentation at the library is open to the public on 26 May at 6pm. Please come and say hi!
