At Stevens Field the high yesterday was 59 and the low this morning was 43. The cold spots dipped into the mid-30s this morning. Humidity yesterday afternoon bottomed out at 53%. Winds at the airfield hit 7mph yesterday.
Precip summary… There were a couple of spotty showers yesterday afternoon, but rain totals were light. The CoCoRaHS 24-hour rain lottery winner was Mark north of Hatcher Lake.
Upper level flow is weak out of the north as a ridge builds along the West Coast. However, an upper level low will wobble around the southern NM, southern AZ, and northern Mexico region through the week. This puts us in the “col” between the ridge and the low.
It’s a stagnant weather pattern that will result in just enough moisture and instability to kick up spotty afternoon showers and thunderstorms. The snow level will average 11,500ft to 12,000ft but could briefly drop to 10,500ft with stronger showers.
