Multiple agencies are involved and aggressively fighting the fire.  For updates follow “Plumtaw Fire” or “USDA Forest Service – San Juan National Forest” or “Archuleta County, CO Sheriff’s Office” on Facebook and this link on InciWeb.

A HUGE thanks to the San Juan National Forest crew and everybody else that is aggressively tackling the fire!

Climate Info…The high at Stevens Field yesterday afternoon was 64 and the low this morning was 32. Many of us went below freezing last night…my sensor, about a mile north of Hatcher Lake, recorded a low of 22 degrees and I noticed that downtown fell to 27 degrees. Humidity yesterday afternoon bottomed out at 17% and winds peaked at 32mph at 6:35pm. There was no precipitation recorded in our area yesterday, although I did see a few showers hitting the mountains.

Forecast discussion…

*** Archuleta County and the San Juan National Forest have implemented a STAGE 1 FIRE RESTRICTIONS. ***

Not much to talk about today other than high pressure taking control of our weather for the next couple of days. Highs will rebound to the 70’s and our afternoon winds will fall back to 10-15mph with a few gusts over 20mph. By Friday, a trough in the Pacific NW will increase our winds again and we will be back to 15-25mph winds with gusts over 30mph for the weekend. I continue to feel at least somewhat optimistic that we could see rain back in our forecast by later next week.

My next post will be on Friday…hope to see you guys at the Ruby M. Sisson Memorial Library tomorrow, Thursday, 26 May at 6pm.  We’d love to meet you and answer questions!

The latest 6-10day forecast hints at a chance for increased odds for rain during the first week of June.
