We treated a visiting friend to the Durango-Silverton train ride yesterday where fall colors up in that area are at a peak. As we arrived around 12:30pm into Silverton, a heavy downpour greeted us as we exited the train, along with temps in the upper 30’s. Yours truly was caught without an umbrella or rain jacket, thinking that storms would not be arriving before 3pm! Photo by Mark Langford
Friday – 30 September 2022 – 2:45pm update.
The high on Thursday at Stevens Field was 71 and the low this morning was 41. There was only a trace of rain recorded in our area yesterday.
Thanks to a closed low and trough slowly moving east over the next 3 days, our rain odds will be on the increase and our afternoon temperatures will be on the decrease. This afternoon, storms are firing up to our west, but are forecast to track to our north, leaving us with only a slight chance for rain. Better odds will be from Saturday through Tuesday as the slow-moving low tracks eastward, giving us a really good chance for rain along with cooler temps. The low will be slow to go next week, so look for a continued chance for scattered afternoon showers and thunderstorms.
