Low stratus clouds in the Piedra River canyon. The river is cranking!… Pic taken 7/30/2022
Sunday – 31 Jul 2022 – 9:15am
At Stevens Field the high yesterday was 74. The low this morning was 54. Humidity yesterday afternoon bottomed out at 44%. Winds at the airfield hit 9mph yesterday. We hit 20mph in O’Neal Park.
Precip summary… Most of the county got another good soaking. Check out these 24-hour rainfall totals…
The upper level high continues to wobble around the Four Corners area. The heart of the monsoon moisture plume has been over heads, but it will weaken over the next few days.
Tuesday and Wednesday, Cape, a measure of instability, and precipitable water both decrease which will result in fewer afternoon showers and thunderstorms.
Later in the week the monsoon plume will shift our direction again, so we’ll see an increase of afternoon shower and thunderstorm activity.
Storms will continue to be hit and miss and can produce quick bursts of heavy rain, small hail, gusty winds, and lighting.
At 9am there was nothing on radar in our region.
