Bruno is looking for a home! He’s a 3-year old German Shepherd mix. He’s leery around people he doesn’t know, but once you earn his trust, he’s an amazing companion. This smart boy is great on a leash, knows lots of commands, and loves to shake hands. Introduce yourself slowly to this guy and he won’t leave your side! Please visit the Pagosa Springs Humane Society or call them at (970) 731-4771 to learn more about Bruno.

Precip summary… There has been no recent precip.
There is nothing on radar this afternoon.
The next 7-8 days… Ridging will give us a good amount of sun and dry weather. Temps will be near average through Thursday and then slightly above average Friday-Sunday.
Changes around the 29th?… Long range forecast models are hinting at a more active pattern the last few days of November and maybe into the first week of December. Right now I don’t see a big system for us, but a more active pattern gives me hope!
Below are Euro, GFS, and Canadian model ensemble meteograms for forecast snowfall for 24-hour periods – This is one of my favorite products and I track it closely all winter long. It’s read left to right with the most current time on the left. Times are in Zulu. The top chart shows snowfall amounts for 24-hour periods for a number of model runs. Similar amounts and similar times for the different versions results in higher forecast confidence. The bottom chart shows the range of the amounts. I focus on the little vertical light blue boxes, the green “mean” line, and to a lesser extent, the blue “control” line. I closely track the differences and the trends.
The average snowfall for all three models is 2-3”, but the outcomes vary considerably from zero to 18”. This system is 9 days away – too far into the future to get caught up in the details, but it’s good to see a more active pattern with some potential!
My next post will be on Tuesday.
