At Stevens Field the high yesterday was 62 and the low this morning was 45. Humidity yesterday afternoon bottomed out at 60%. Winds at the airfield hit 28mph yesterday.
Precip summary… A batch of showers moved through yesterday morning and then another round moved through in the afternoon. The final batch of showers moved through around 2am. The rain lottery winners for the 2-day event were Val in Lost Valley and Lisa in San Juan Mountain Village.
Below are 24-hour rainfall totals and 48-hour rainfall totals.
Today we’ll gradually dry out as ridging builds back into the area. There will still be enough instability and moisture to trigger an afternoon shower or thunderstorm or two, mostly over the mountains.
Friday through Sunday we’re stuck between a developing trough along the West Coast and the sub-tropical high over the southern plains. Drier air will continue to move into our area and give us lots of sun. Unfortunately upper level flow will increase out of the southwest resulting in afternoon winds up to 30mph Saturday and Sunday.
The pattern gets interesting starting Monday. I’m tracking four different features that are trying to line up to give us a good soaking on Tuesday and Wednesday. For more details, please check out the 500mb charts below with my comments.
Radar this morning doesn’t show anything significant in our area.
