At Stevens Field the high yesterday afternoon was 76 and the low this morning was 54. Humidity yesterday afternoon bottomed out at 35%. Winds at the airfield hit 22mph yesterday.
Precip summary… The rain lottery winner today was Val in Lost Valley. Yesterday’s rain lottery winner was Lisa in San Juan River Village.
** A big THANKS to Leo and Udgar for joining the CoCoRaHS team! **
CoCoRaHS folks expect an email later today with details about a potluck in October.
Today a weak trough will slowly move through Colorado. Upper level southwest flow, forcing ahead of the trough, and plenty of monsoon moisture will result in another soggy day and patchy morning fog.
Ridging will move in Saturday and Sunday. Instability remains high but there will be less moisture to work with. Afternoon showers and thunderstorms will develop in the afternoons but will be more hit and miss.
Monday through Wednesday will be mostly dry with a just a slight chance for an afternoon shower or thunderstorm, mostly over the mountains. Temps will warm back to average to 5 degrees above average and the drier air will lead to cooler morning temps – dry air results in bigger temperature swings between highs and lows.
Monsoon storms are hit and miss and can produce quick bursts of heavy rain, small hail, gusty winds, and lighting.
