At Stevens Field the high yesterday was 68 and the low this morning was 47. At 10:30 this morning, we’re at a chilly 45 degrees in O’Neal Park. I’m about to start sipping my second mug of hot tea! Humidity yesterday afternoon bottomed out at 31%. Winds at the airfield hit 20mph yesterday.
Precip summary… Much of the county got decent rain. It started last night around 11:30pm with a few big thunder BOOMS. The CoCoRaHS rain lottery winner was Lisa along Mill Creek. Bobby near Lake Forest reported a total of 0.90” at 9am this morning!
An upper level low is spinning over Montana and the tailing trough extends to the southwest into the Great Basin. The low and the trough will slowly move east and keep moisture and instability across our region.
Upper level flow will turn northwesterly behind the trough on Tuesday. Just enough moisture and instability will remain in the area to kick up spotty afternoon showers and thunderstorms through the rest of the week. The snow level will average around 11,500ft but could briefly drop to 10,500ft with stronger showers.
