Trail Ambassador Tommy was keeping a close eye on the Piedra River trailhead. It was great meeting a few Pagosa Weather followers today!… Pic taken 6/25/2022

At Stevens Field the high today was 77. The low this morning was 49. Humidity this afternoon bottomed out at 21%. Winds at the airfield have hit 21mph today.
Side note: The Grand Junction radar is expected to be down until 1 Jul for scheduled maintenance. We will rely heavily on satellite during this time.
Precip summary… It was dry for most of the county yesterday.
*** Archuleta County and the San Juan National Forest have implemented STAGE 1 FIRE RESTRICTIONS. ***
The moisture plume has moved back into our area. Spotty showers have hit a few parts of the county as I work on this post. This round of subtropical moisture will stick with us through Monday afternoon. 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 with a chance for afternoon showers and thunderstorms nearly every day.
For those of you looking at the forecast and thinking “yuck it’s going to rain every day”… Two things: 1. It won’t rain everywhere every day. 2. When it rains, it usually rains heavily for 20-30 mins and then the sun usually comes out shortly after. “If you don’t like the weather, just wait a few minutes!”
