At Stevens Field the high temp this afternoon was 40. The low this morning was 9. The upper Piedra was the cold spot with a low of -10. Most of us stayed above zero. The peak wind at the airfield was 5mph.

|-30 / 1913
Precip summary… There has been no recent precipitation.
There is nothing on radar this afternoon in our area.
Tonight through most of tomorrow… The ridge will move over our heads tomorrow afternoon. Behind the ridge, upper level southwest flow will gradually push more moisture into our area. Spotty snowshowers will develop over the mountains Monday night. The lucky spots in the mountains could get an inch of snow by Tuesday morning.
Tuesday to Wednesday afternoon… The next system will move through late Wednesday morning. During the day Tuesday scattered showers are possible, mostly over the mountains. The snow level will pop up to 7,500ft Tuesday afternoon but I think the valley will be mostly dry.
The best chance for snow is late Tuesday evening to around noon on Wednesday with scattered showers a few hours on either side.
– Valley: 2-4”
– Mountains: 6-10”
*** 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. Temps could be 10 degrees above average on Friday.
Long range… Another round of storms will move through 15-18 Jan but I have no confidence in the details.
My next post will be tomorrow afternoon.
