At Stevens Field the high today has been 35 and the low this morning was 18 degrees. Humidity bottomed out at 42% today. Winds at the airfield hit 10 mph this afternoon.
Precipitation summary…Most of us reported zero to a trace overnight, but Chromo actually had measurable snow of 0.10. Wolf Creek Ski area reported 1 inch of snow. This afternoon I recorded 0.10 inch of snow at our place about a mile north of Hatcher Lake from snow showers that moved in around 3pm.

Just when I was about to give up on snow in the valley, it started snowing at 2:45pm at our home about a mile north of Hatcher Lake…as of this post, my snow board showed 0.10 inches of snow. The trough and associated cold front moved through our area around 1pm. Since that time, our temperatures started slowly dropping and snow showers started forming over the mountains, then moved south into the valley. Looking at the downtown cam, it does not appear that much, if any snow made it into downtown. Look for mostly sunny skies the rest of the week with a chance for some mountain snow showers on Wednesday night.
You might want to fire up your snowblower this week to make sure it’s still working…next week is looking much more positive for snow! I’ll share some model runs and my thoughts on next week’s storm on Wednesday, when I do my next post.
Our next “Meet and Greet” will be this Saturday from 11am to 3pm in front of the San Juan Mercantile, at 524 San Juan Street. It should be a balmy 40 degrees, so please stop by and say “Hello”, or whatever you feel like saying. Please leave your tomatoes and snowballs at home!
The rest of today: Mostly cloudy with a chance for snow showers. Skies will clear tonight, and lows will drop into the single digits and low teens.
Tuesday-Thursday: Partly cloudy with a slight chance for light snow showers in the mountains. Lows in the single digits to low teens and highs in the low to mid 30’s.
Friday-Saturday: Mostly sunny with lows in the single digits to low teens and highs in the low to mid 40’s.
