At Stevens Field the high yesterday afternoon was 47 and so far, today we’ve hit 46. The low this morning was 31. Our low was 21 in O’Neal Park. Winds at the airfield peaked at 17mph yesterday afternoon and today the peak has been 12mph.
|Average High||Record High / Year||Average Low||Record Low / Year|
|45||66 / 1972||12||-18 / 1917|
Precipitation summary… There was no measurable precip in the last 24 hours.
Rest of today through Thursday… We will be between a ridge extending north through the central part of the country and a broad trough along the West Coast. This means we’ll see patches of mid and upper high clouds, seasonal temps, and breezy afternoons.
Temps… Highs will be in the low to high 40s and lows will be in the low teens to low 20s.
Winds… Peak winds will be around 20mph in the afternoons. The windy spots will see 25mph Wednesday afternoon.
Friday through Sunday… The pattern will remain weak and disorganized, but moisture will gradually increase. Upper level flow will be mostly out of the west and the northwest which does not favor us.
Hit and miss showers are possible Friday afternoon to Sunday afternoon. The best chance for showers is Friday evening through Saturday afternoon. Warmer air, typical this time of year, will limit snow in the valley. Our mountains could do ok, but the central and northern Colorado mountains will be favored.
Temps… Friday through Sunday highs will be in the low to high 40s and lows will be in the low 20s to low 30s.
Winds… Winds will peak in the 15-20mph range each afternoon.
Snow levels will rise to 8,000ft by Friday afternoon and will continue to rise to over 8,500ft by Friday evening. They’ll stay over 8,500ft into Saturday evening and then lower to around 7,500ft Saturday night.
Valley below 8,000ft: mostly rain with a dusting of snow possible
Valley above 8,000ft: a rain and snow mix with up to an inch of snow possible
Mountains above 9,000ft: 4-8”
Monday and beyond… We’ll start the week dry but then the pattern gets active again.
My next post will be on Thursday.
