Smoke and air quality this morning…
Climate Info…The high at Stevens Field yesterday afternoon was 65 and the low this morning was 45. Humidity yesterday afternoon bottomed out at 22%. Winds yesterday afternoon peaked at 37mph at 2:35pm. Most of us got a few sprinkles overnight with whopping rainfall totals that ranged from 0.01-0.02! The mountains got another light dusting of snow.
*** Archuleta County and the San Juan National Forest have implemented a STAGE 1 FIRE RESTRICTIONS. ***
A jet core tracking to the south of the four corners today will give us a tiny chance for some showers and possibly a few scattered thunderstorms. As was the case yesterday, these will mainly be “mountain hugger” showers and storms associated with this system. With the passage of a cool front overnight, our highs only in the low 60’s for the next couple of days. There is a chance for some snow showers in the mountains through tomorrow, but totals will likely be less than an inch. Winds will continue to gust over 30mph for the next two days, but it is looking positive for a “wind breaker” for Wednesday and Thursday. By Wednesday, high pressure builds over us and we should see closer to normal highs for Wednesday and Thursday. Unfortunately, it looks like the high winds may return by Friday-this weekend.
