Yesterday – dark skies to the east and sun to the west… Pics taken 7/10/2022
Monday – 11 Jul 2022 – 9:45am
At Stevens Field the high yesterday was 87. The low this morning was 53. Humidity yesterday afternoon bottomed out at 17%. Winds at the airfield hit 27mph yesterday.
Precip summary… The eastern part of the county got some rain while the western part stayed dry.
The upper level high continues to wobble around the Four Corners area. Monsoon moisture is being pushed into our area from the south. Precipitable water, a measure of the amount of water potentially available in the atmosphere, and Cape, the amount of fuel available for developing a thunderstorm, will stay higher than our thresholds for afternoon storms.
So what does this mean? It means typical monsoon summer days here in Pagosa Country…
– Wake up to lots of blue sky
– 10-noon clouds develop over the mountains
– 11am-1pm first few storms develop over the mountains
– 1pm-7pm scattered storms occur across the county
– After 7pm most storms dissipate, clouds clear, and we have a pretty sunset
Storms will be hit and miss and can produce quick bursts of heavy rain, small hail, gusty winds, and lighting.
Radar this morning doesn’t have anything in our region.

I’ll try to get another post out tomorrow afternoon, otherwise it will be Wednesday morning.
I’ve been a “weather geek” since I was young child. I joined the military out of high school and was lucky to get my dream job in weather. I have 20 years of military weather experience which includes forecasting the weather all over the world. Highlights were six years in Alaska and making life and death weather decisions during deployments.
I love mountains, I love snow, and I love summertime thunderstorms. I spend a bunch of time playing outdoors and found my paradise in Pagosa Springs. I do Pagosa Weather as a community service. Hopefully you find us helpful!
