Precip summary… The best precip stayed closer to the mountains yesterday. Chama did best with nearly 1.10”.
The upper level ridge axis is drifting back and forth, nearly over our heads. We’re currently on the northern edge of monsoon moisture plume. Our best chances for precip are today and tomorrow and then they’ll decrease a bit Monday and Tuesday.Precipitable water and instability will peak tomorrow resulting in our wettest day of this 5-7 day period.
Independence Day – The moisture plume will be pushed a little to our east so there will be less shower and thunderstorm activity.
Expect a typical Pagosa Country summer day… Wake up to lots of blue sky. 9-11am: Clouds will start developing, especially over the mountains. 11am-1pm: Scattered showers and thunderstorms over the mountains. 1-6pm: Scattered showers and thunderstorms possible anywhere in the county. After 6pm: Clouds will gradually clear – look for a pretty sunset!
The long range models continue to indicate a typical monsoon pattern with a chance for afternoon showers and thunderstorms nearly every day. Some days will be more active than others.
