Beautiful day for a hike along Piedra River Trail. Interestingly, beavers have been busy chopping down aspens in the area. Are they going to dam the Piedra for a winter home?

At Stevens Field the high today has been 68 and the low this morning was 32. The cold spots dipped into the mid-20s! Quite a few of us had frost again this morning. Humidity today has been as low as 19%. Winds at the airfield hit 14mph today.
Precip summary… There weren’t any rainshowers in the area yesterday or today.
A huge ridge has built across the Great Basin into the Pacific Northwest. A cutoff low remains off the southern coast of California and will slowly meander northeast and be a player for us on Sunday.
In the meantime, we are in for a few more spectacular autumn days on Friday and Saturday. Get out and enjoy the last of the colors.
It’s still transition season. Which means the medium range models are having their mood swings. One minute, they’re going on about rain and a lot of it. The next they have dried it all out. And they’re constantly bickering with each other!
Finally, I think the consensus is that the upper level low off the coast of California will drift northeast bringing isolated showers to our area on Sunday afternoon into the evening from the south. However, the heavier showers will be confined to the mountains with just a few rain lottery winners in the valley and those will probably be along the southern edge. And it will be snow above 10,000 feet. Wolf Creek should see a few inches.
We’ll see a few remnant showers on Tuesday before drying out again on Wednesday.
There was nothing significant on radar all day.
