At Stevens Field the high yesterday was 78 and the low this morning was 48. The cold spots dipped into the upper 30s this morning. Humidity yesterday afternoon bottomed out at 25%. Winds at the airfield hit 20mph yesterday.
Precip summary… Most of the county didn’t get any precip but the rain lottery winner was Hillary near Chromo.
Upper level ridging will stick with us through Monday. There’s just enough moisture and instability to kick up a few afternoon and early evening showers and thunderstorms.
Tuesday and Wednesday, the remnants of tropical system Kay will move through the region. Moisture will increase, high temps will be 5-10 degrees below average, and much of the county will get a good soaking. Precip will fall on and off from Tuesday afternoon to Wednesday night.
** Thursday morning, keep an eye on our highest peaks, like the Rio Grande Pyramid and Summit Peak, for SNOW! The snow level could drop as low as 13,000ft. **
Thursday we’ll gradually dry out as the remnants of Kay move to our east and ridging builds back into the area. There will still be enough instability and moisture to trigger a few afternoon showers and thunderstorms.
There is nothing on radar in our region this morning.
