This beautiful thunderstorm popped up Friday evening over the middle Piedra River area… Pic taken 7/15/2022
Sunday – 17 Jul 2022 – 1:30pm
At Stevens Field the high yesterday was 88. The low this morning was 54. Humidity yesterday afternoon bottomed out at 19%. Winds at the airfield hit 23mph yesterday.
Precip summary… There was very little rain on Friday but yesterday quite a bit of the county got at least a few drops.
The upper level high continues to wobble around the Four Corners area. Monday and Tuesday the high could be over our heads which will inhibit shower and thunderstorm development.
The main part of the monsoon plume has pushed to our west but there is residual moisture trying to hang on. Moisture will decrease through Tuesday which will also result in less shower and thunderstorm activity.
So our shower and thunderstorm chances will be lower today through Tuesday, but they won’t go completely away. We’re still playing the rain lottery!
Temps will also be above average through Tuesday. The warm spots could hit the mid-90s, especially on Tuesday.
Later in the week, the high will shift to our east and the monsoon plume will move back into our area resulting in increased shower and thunderstorm activity – yay!
Continue to expect 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.
