At Stevens Field the high temp yesterday afternoon was 67. The low this morning was 38. The lowest relative humidity yesterday afternoon was 13%. The peak wind at the airfield on Sunday was 41mph, on Monday it was 39mph, and so far today it has hit 41mph.
Precip summary… None in the last 24 hours.
An upper level low pressure system currently over northern California will move a little south and then take a turn towards the northeast and track over Utah. Meanwhile 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 Thursday morning and bring us a few more clouds. Behind the trough we’ll see cooler temps and finally weaker winds!
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.
