At Stevens Field the high yesterday was 46 and the low this morning was 25 degrees. Humidity yesterday afternoon bottomed out at 29%. Winds at the airfield hit 20mph yesterday.
Precipitation summary…Wolf Creek Ski area reported 3 inches of fresh power overnight. Based on reports from all of you this morning, snowfall ranged from just zero to a couple of inches in the valley, with most of only seeing 1/2 inch or less. The snow seemed to go “poof” last night after moving through the Durango area, where totals were generally 1-2 inches.
The cut-off low has moved east this morning, leaving us with some leftover wrap around moisture and a chance for some additional snow showers this afternoon as a shortwave to our NW moves through.
We are now in a NW flow, which normally means very little chance for moisture. Look for a chilly week ahead with lows in the single digits and low teens and highs in the upper 30’s to low 40’s. We could see a few of the Siberian spots in the county drop to below zero over the next couple of nights.
The latest GFS model is teasing us with a chance for a decent snow for Thanksgiving, but that’s way too far out to get excited about! For now, mainly cold and fair weather ahead this week.
