At Stevens Field the high temp yesterday afternoon was 27. The low was -4. Most of us had lows in the -5 to -10 range but the cold spots dipped in the minus teens. The peak wind at the airfield yesterday afternoon was 9mph.
|Average High||Record High / Year||Average Low||Record Low / Year|

Precipitation summary… There was no measurable snow in the last 24 hours.
Rest of today… A weak disturbance will move through the upper level northerly flow and could kick up a few mountain snowflakes – mostly on the other side of The Divide. Lucky spots in the mountains could get an inch of snow.
Thursday and Friday… Ridging and drier air will give us lots of sun. Temps will remain slightly below average.
Saturday and Sunday… We’ll see more clouds as upper level west and then southwest flow gradually push more moisture into the region.
The mountains could see a few snowflakes but they’ll be lucky to get an inch of new snow. Snow will start increasing over the mountains late Sunday night. I expect Wolf Creek to report 1-3” of new snow on their Monday morning report.
Monday and Tuesday… A low pressure system will move through. There are forecast model inconsistencies with its route but here are my initial thoughts…
Snow will gradually increase through the day on Monday, fall heaviest Monday night, and then gradually taper off on Tuesday.
My initial snowfall forecast…
My next post will be Friday afternoon.
