At Stevens Field the high today was 87 – 3 degrees short of the record of 90. The low this morning was 48, but the cold spots dipped into the upper 30s. Humidity this afternoon bottomed out at 15%. Winds at the airfield hit 25mph today.
Precip summary… For the previous 24-hours from this morning, most of us didn’t get any precip but the rain lottery winner was Lisa south of Echo Canyon Lake with 0.01”. Hey, it’s better than none!
The upper level high is parked over the UT/NV state line and will wobble around the area through Thursday. Clockwise flow around the high is out of the north-northeast in our region. Like today, a few spotty afternoon showers and thunderstorms are possible around the periphery of the high (see the satellite loop below). Tomorrow there is a slight uptick in moisture and instability leading to the best chance for showers and thunderstorms over the next 5-6 days.
High temps will remain 5-10 degrees above average, and the drier air will lead to cooler morning temps lows.
