Another beautiful sunrise in Pagosa Country… Pic taken 6/26/2022
Sunday – 26 Jun 2022 – 9:15am
At Stevens Field the high yesterday was 77 at 1:15pm and then showers moved through and the temp dropped 17 degrees to 60. The low this morning was 52. Humidity yesterday afternoon bottomed out at 21% before showers moved through. Winds at the airfield hit 21mph yesterday.
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… A couple of parts of Pagosa Country got a good soaking yesterday but others stayed dry.
*** Archuleta County and the San Juan National Forest have implemented STAGE 1 FIRE RESTRICTIONS. ***
This round of subtropical moisture will stick with us through Monday afternoon. Rainshowers and thunderstorms will peak today as the main part of the moisture plume is 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!”
