A before and after photo taken from our backyard on Monday and today…It’s great to get our snow globe back!
Thursday – 29 Dec. 2022 – Noon
At Stevens Field the high yesterday was 33 and the low this morning was 23 degrees. Humidity yesterday afternoon bottomed out at 91%. Winds at the airfield hit 29mph in a wind gust yesterday.
Precipitation summary…While this past storm falls into the category of “under producers”, we still managed to see 2-4 inches of snow yesterday for most of the valley, and storm totals ranging from 4-7 inches in Pagosa Springs. The highest totals were south of town, where Chromo recorded 12 inches.
Wolf Creek Ski area reports 12 inches of snow over the past 24 hours and a storm total of 16 inches.

Travel Disclaimer: While we would love to help you make decisions on whether to drive over the pass, plan your trip or predict if planes will be able to take off in Durango on a particular date, we don’t have the resources to do so…plus it puts us in potential legal liability if you go flying off Wolf Creek Pass when we suggested it would be a good day to travel! Please use these two links: New Mexico Road Conditions and Colorado Road Conditions. And this one for Durango Airport flight information.
The rest of today through Saturday… Partly cloudy this afternoon. Cooler temps with lows in the single digits and teens and highs in the low to mid 30’s. There will be a chance for snow showers on Friday and Saturday with light accumulations of 1-2 inches of snow expected during the period. Clouds will be on the increase on Friday and Saturday as a smaller system moves in from the west.
Saturday night-Monday: Another trough and more SW flow will give us a good chance for snow from Sunday through Monday. Best odds for heavier totals will be on Sunday and Sunday night.
Tuesday-rest of next week: Continued unsettled with chances for snow throughout next week
