Wolf Creek Pass got 2-3” of snow and looks slick this morning… Web cam 4/23/2022 at 7am
Saturday – 23 Apr 2022 – 9:10am
At Stevens Field the high temp yesterday afternoon was 70. The low this morning was 34. The cold spots dipped into the low 20s. The peak wind at the airfield yesterday afternoon was 46mph. Our friends in Alamosa hit 81mph!
A bit of a surprise was the dust cloud. It got stirred up as the cold front moved through southern UT and northern AZ. I saw visibility less than a half mile in a few reports and pictures yesterday afternoon.
Precip summary… Well we got a little bit of precipitation. Based on web cams and snotel, I estimate that the Wolf Creek Pass got 2-3”. It mostly rained mud in the valley though we did get a couple of reports of a dusting of snow.
A few hit and miss showers will develop over the mountains on Saturday and Sunday afternoons.
Monday and Tuesday will be typical sunny and pleasant spring days with breezy afternoon winds.
I’m keeping an eye on a weak system Wednesday. Winds will tick up a notch and instability will increase enough to kick up spotty showers and an isolated thunderstorm.
