Love stumbling onto these beautiful scenes in the high country!… Pic taken 7/14/2022
Friday – 15 Jul 2022 – 8:30am
At Stevens Field the high yesterday was 87. The low this morning was 58. Humidity yesterday afternoon bottomed out at 19%. Winds at the airfield hit 21mph yesterday.
Precip summary… Storms have been more miss lately than hit but a few areas have won the rain lottery. Wednesday afternoon we drove through the only shower in the county along 160 just west of uptown. Then yesterday a couple of good cells moved mostly along 160 again and dropped decent rain.
The upper level high continues to wobble around the Four Corners area. Monsoon moisture is being cycled clockwise – anti-cyclonically to weather geeks – around the high. The last couple of days the high has been to our west. That puts under the more stable side with less activity. I expect this trend to continue through the weekend.
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.
