Fall Colors

Average dates for peak fall colors

The past…

At Stevens Field the high yesterday was 73 and the low this morning was 39. The cold spot was the upper Piedra at 29. Humidity yesterday afternoon bottomed out at 24%. Winds at the airfield hit 12mph yesterday.

Precip summary… There hasn’t been any precip reported in the last 24 hours.

Forecast discussion…

Ridging will remain in our area through the week. However, a couple of weak troughs are expected to skirt across northern Colorado.  Subtropical moisture will try to nose north into southwest Colorado. There will be just enough instability and moisture to kick up scattered afternoon showers and thunderstorms.  It’s a monsoonish pattern for us.

Action will be slow the first part of the week and mostly over the mountains.  The second part of the week will be a little more active. I’m not expecting much precip – we’ll be playing the rain lottery.

I grew up in Montana where my love of the mountains is rooted. I was in the Air Force, forecasting aviation weather, for 24 years. I had eight assignments and my favorites were Colorado, Alaska, Korea, and Germany. I deployed a number of times including to Iraq and Afghanistan. After RV traveling for nine years, we found paradise in Pagosa. Here we enjoy playing outside in the spectacular San Juan mountains!
