UPDATE: Phil Slusher is the winner of $50 gift certificate to Ski & Bow Rack!

The following individuals had the next nearest guesses and win a Ski & Bow Rack hat! Congratulations to Cheri Maxwell, Corey Shult, Dee Halley, and Carol Ann Peterson!!!

We had an average of 2.19″ of precip reported at our CoCoRaHS stations across Archuleta County during the month of September. That brings our monsoon season total to 9.53!!! That is 3.28″ more than the monsoon average for the months of July, August, September of 6.25″. That is the 2nd most pecip we have had in a monsoon season in the last ten years. We had 11.6″ in the summer of 2013. 2014 was close with 9.18″.

Huge thanks to Brittany & Robert and the rest of the team at Ski & Bow Rack for the support of our weather contests and for being our Blizzard level sponsor!

This contest closed for new guesses on Sunday, June 5th, 2022 at 11:59pm. Good luck to all.

For grins and to promote local businesses, Pagosa Weather is doing a Monsoon weather contest.

The contest… Forecast the amount of measured rain that Pagosa Springs will receive during the three months of monsoon season from July through September.

As a starting point, you might want to read my article from the other day that discusses the monsoon.

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!
