At Stevens Field the high temp yesterday afternoon was 32. The low was 11 at 9:55pm. The peak wind at the airfield yesterday afternoon was 18mph.
|Average High||Record High / Year||Average Low||Record Low / Year|
|40||54 / 1986||3||-32 / 1939|
Precipitation summary… No measurable snow fell in the valley. Wolf Creek reported 2” of new snow in the last 24 hours.
Radar is boring in our area this afternoon.
Rest of today… It will be similar to yesterday with clouds and occasional light snow over the mountains.
Snow will start increasing over the mountains late tonight. I expect Wolf Creek to report 1-3” of new snow on their Monday morning report.
Monday and Tuesday… A complicated pattern has set up with a low expected to track to our south and a weakening trough to our north that will fall apart as it moves south. We’ll be in the middle in split flow which is not conducive to us getting precip. The limited moisture will get squeezed out over us, but my expectations are low.
Mostly light snow will fall on and off from early Monday morning to noon on Tuesday. The best chance for snow is mid-morning Monday to midnight.
My snowfall forecast…
Valley near town: 0-2”
Valley closer to the mountains 1-3”
Wednesday through Sunday… Ridging will take over and give us lots of sun and dry weather. We’ll see a gradual warming trend with temps near average by Friday.
Monday and beyond… The weather pattern will get more active.
I’ll do another post tomorrow morning.
