Smoke and air quality this morning…
Climate Info…The high at Stevens Field yesterday afternoon was 63 and the low this morning was 43. Humidity yesterday afternoon bottomed out at 22%. Winds yesterday afternoon peaked at 35mph at 1:35pm. There was no precipitation recorded yesterday.
*** Archuleta County and the San Juan National Forest have implemented a STAGE 1 FIRE RESTRICTIONS. ***
The Jetstream remains locked in place to our north and another trough will arrive this afternoon, giving us a tiny chance for some showers and possibly a few scattered thunderstorms. There will mainly be “mountain hugger” showers and storms associated with this system. Cooler air will filter in behind the front, keeping our highs only in the low 60’s for the next couple of days. It will unfortunately mainly be a wind producer for us, with winds gusting to over 30mph once again! There is a chance for some snow showers in the mountains through Tuesday, but totals will likely be less than an inch.
Look for a similar scenario on Monday-Tuesday morning as yet another trough moves through. By Wednesday, high pressure builds over us and we should see closer to normal highs with less wind for the remainder of the workweek. Unfortunately, it looks like the high winds may return by this weekend.
