At Stevens Field the high temp this afternoon was 35. The low was 17 at 8:15pm last night and then clouds moved in and temps warmed to the mid-20s after midnight. The peak wind at the airfield was 18mph.
|Average High||Record High / Year||Average Low||Record Low / Year|
|35||55 / 1956||-1||-37 / 1971|
Precip summary… Wolf Creek reported 2” of snow this morning and another 5” since they opened for a total of 7”. We ended up with 1.5” just north of Turkey Springs.
Tonight… Clouds will gradually clear. Patchy fog is possible in low-lying areas.
Saturday through Monday… Ridging will be in control. We’ll see more sun and have dry weather. Temps will be near average.
Tuesday evening to Wednesday afternoon… The next weak system will move through. It will be pretty similar to the one that just finished.
The best chance for snow is late Tuesday evening to around noon on Wednesday with scattered showers a few hours on either side.
– Valley: 1-3”
– Mountains: 4-6”
*** Roads will get slick Tuesday night. ***
Wednesday night through most of Saturday… We’ll see the next round of ridging, dry weather, and above average temps.
Long range… The weather pattern continues to look more active starting around the 15th, but there is still a lot of uncertainty. Forecast confidence is low for the details.
Unless something significant pops up, my next post will be on Sunday.
