At Stevens Field the high yesterday afternoon was 75 and the low this morning was 49. The cold spots dipped into the low 40s. Humidity yesterday afternoon bottomed out at 34%. Winds at the airfield hit 23mph yesterday.
Precip summary… The rain lottery winner both today and yesterday was Val in the Lost Valley!
Moisture and instability are marginal today for afternoon showers and thunderstorms, but a few will pop up. Cell movement will initially be north to south and then shift northeast to southwest by evening.
Thursday and Friday a weak trough will slowly move through northern Colorado. Upper level southwest flow, forcing ahead of the trough, and an increase in moisture will ramp up shower and thunderstorm activity for us.
Ridging and drier air will move in Saturday and Sunday making conditions marginal again for spotty afternoon showers and thunderstorms.
Monsoon storms are hit and miss and can produce quick bursts of heavy rain, small hail, gusty winds, and lighting.
Radar didn’t indicate anything in our area this morning.
