Beautiful morning for a hike!… Pic taken 6/6/2022
Monday – 6 Jun 2022 – 3:15pm
At Stevens Field the high yesterday afternoon was 79 and so far today we hit 80. The low this morning was 43. Nearly all of us stayed above freezing but a couple cold spots briefly dipped to 32. Humidity yesterday afternoon bottomed out at 16% and this afternoon it’s 15%. Winds at the airfield yesterday afternoon peaked at 27mph and today they hit 33mph.
Precip summary… None in the last 24 hours.

The upper level flat or “dirty ridge” is sticking with us. We’ll continue to see mid and upper level clouds and a few cumulus clouds will develop in the afternoons. Afternoon winds will continue to be gusty.
The pattern is slowly getting more unstable, as it should this time of year. Unfortunately, we are still missing an influx of moisture.
Long range forecast models are hinting at our first monsoonal surge of moisture starting around 17 or 18 June – yay!
Potential for record high temps? These are the record highs for the next 6 days:
7 Jun: 87
8 Jun: 92
9 Jun: 90
10 Jun: 95
11 Jun: 94
12 Jun: 98
I expect our warmest days to be 10, 11, and 12 Jun, but it won’t be hot enough to break those records – thank goodness! There is a slight chance that we break the record of 87 tomorrow, 7 Jun, and another slight chance to beat the record of 90 on Thursday, 9 Jun. We’ll probably hear about other locations breaking records, but I doubt we’ll break records here in Pagosa Springs.
