At Stevens Field the high yesterday was 63 and the low this morning was 49. The cold spot was the upper Piedra at 39. Humidity yesterday afternoon bottomed out at 76%. Winds at the airfield hit 22mph yesterday.
Precip summary… It rained pretty good yesterday through much of the morning. The afternoon showers and thunderstorms stayed to our south. The rain lottery winner for the last 24 hours was Linda in downtown Pagosa Springs! The rain lottery winner for the 3-day storm total was Val in Lost Valley.
Thanks to everyone for your reports!
Today through Sunday ridging will build over the region. Upper level winds will gradually turn from westerly on Friday to northwest and then north through the weekend. Dry air advection will lead to lots of sun and seasonal temps.
Starting Monday and lasting through the week, a pseudo-monsoon pattern will try to set up. Ridging will remain over the region and subtropical moisture will nose in from the south and southwest. Afternoon showers and thunderstorms will be few and far between on Monday and Tuesday and then increase a bit as the week progresses. I’m not expecting much – we’ll be playing the rain lottery.
Radar doesn’t have anything in our area this morning.
