At Stevens Field the high so far today has been 86 and yesterday it was 88. The low this morning was 55. Humidity yesterday afternoon bottomed out at 14% and today it’s 20%. Winds at the airfield hit 16mph yesterday. Check out these temps yesterday around 4pm on Weather Underground…
Precip summary… A few raindrops might have fallen in the southeast part of the county, but there was no measurable precip yesterday.
The upper level high is wobbling around the Four Corners area. Monsoon moisture is being pushed into our area from the south. Most forecast models show precipitable water approaching an inch, which is 150% to 200% of average, by late tomorrow afternoon and staying that high through next weekend.
The other ingredient we look at for summer storms is instability. Cape is one of our best tools for that and it also stays high through next weekend.
So what does this mean? It means typical monsoon summer days here in Pagosa Country. There’s a chance for showers and thunderstorms every afternoon and evening but they’ll be hit and miss. Storms will be capable of producing quick bursts of heavy rain, small hail, gusty winds, and lighting.
