At Stevens Field the high yesterday afternoon was 70 and today we hit 77. The low this morning was 47. Humidity yesterday afternoon bottomed out at 35% and this afternoon it was 24%. Winds at the airfield peaked at 23mph yesterday evening and have hit 29mph today.
Side note: The Grand Junction radar is expected to down until 1 Jul for scheduled maintenance. We will rely heavily on satellite during this time.
Precip summary… Spotty showers and thunderstorms moved over parts of the county yesterday.
*** Archuleta County and the San Juan National Forest have implemented STAGE 1 FIRE RESTRICTIONS. ***
Things will ramp up again Saturday afternoon through Monday afternoon with another good surge of monsoon moisture. Rainshowers and thunderstorms will peak on Sunday as the main part of the moisture plume moves over us.
The long range looks just like a typical monsoon pattern should: Wake up to lots of sun and bright blue skies. Cumulus clouds start developing by late morning, especially over the mountains. Scattered showers and thunderstorms hit a few parts of the county during the afternoon. Most of the clouds clear during the evening and we’re treated to a pretty sunset. If the monsoon cooperates, this will happen most days in July and August.
