At Stevens Field the high temp yesterday afternoon was 75 – congratulations Frank Snyder for winning the 75 degrees contest! He won a $25 gift certificate for some of the best burgers in Pagosa at THE SAGE. The low this morning was 41. The lowest relative humidity yesterday afternoon was 13%. The peak wind at the airfield on Friday was 28mph and on Saturday it was 37mph.
Precip summary… None in the last 24 hours.
An upper level low pressure system will slowly move down the California coast while a pesky ridge hangs tight over the southern Plains and Mississippi Valley. The moisture and precip will miss the southwest US but we’re stuck in the middle where winds will continue cranking.
The trough will finally move through on Thursday and bring us a few more clouds and cooler temps.
Unfortunately I don’t see any significant pattern change for at least the next 10 days. Precip looks minimal to non-existent, winds will be breezy most afternoons, and humidity will stay low.
