Precip summary… CoCoRaHS 24-hour reports and 3-day totals are below. Most of the county got a good soaking!
A HUGE thanks to Hillary Fredrickson for joining the CoCoRaHS team! Your data helps fill one of Archuleta County’s biggest data gaps. The next big data gap we’d like filled is ARBOLES. Here’s the link to learn more about this important program. Feel free to contact Pagosa Weather if you’re interested or have questions.
*** Archuleta County has implemented STAGE 1 FIRE RESTRICTIONS and the San Juan National Forest has implemented STAGE 2 FIRE RESTRICTIONS. ***
Today a trough moving northeast through UT will push the moisture plume to our east and kick up the winds a bit. Starting Tuesday the high will rebound quickly and continue to push sub-tropical moisture into our area for the foreseeable future!
