Slight chance for rain all week…

Steamboat Geyser

We just returned from a great trip to Yellowstone and the Grand Tetons. This is Steamboat Geyser, which rarely erupts, but decided to do so the first day we were in Yellowstone! It is considered the world’s tallest geyser, sending steam upwards to over 300 feet.

Tuesday – 27 September 2022 – 8:45am update.

The past…

The high on Monday at Stevens Field was 74 and the low this morning was 39. Our humidity bottomed out at 23% and the airport recorded a 23mph wind gust. Rainfall totals were basically zip zero nada, but one location south of town reported a trace.

Forecast discussion…

This is certainly not the pattern we had last week, but there will be some scattered storms around each afternoon through at least the weekend. There is some moisture in the mid-levels and that will react with daytime heating each day to produce mainly mountain hugging storms that will have a hard time reaching the valleys. This weekend, a trough and cold front will give us better odds for rain and cooler temps, but as of this post, it looks like most of the moisture will stay to our north. Temps will be perfect for fall foliage viewing with lows in the 30’s and highs in the upper 60’s to low 70’s through Friday.
