Friday – 28 April. 2023 – 8:45am
At Stevens Field the high yesterday was 65 and the low this morning was 37 degrees. Winds gusted to 29mph.
Precipitation summary: Most of us reported either zero or a trace of precipitation from this morning’s showers. Looking at Wolf Creek Pass traffic cam images, it appears they could have had 1-2 inches of snow overnight.

As expected, moisture from today’s cold front stayed to our east and NE, with the exception of Wolf Creek Pass, which appears to have gotten 1-2 inches of snow overnight. High pressure moves in for the weekend and we could see our first 70-degree temperatures as early as Sunday. That could prompt some upper-elevation snow melt, so we will need to keep an eye on nearby river flows. There is a tiny chance for some afternoon showers and thunderstorms on Tuesday and Wednesday of next week, but as of this post, the upcoming week looks mainly dry.
The rest of the day: Partly cloudy with highs in the low to mid 50’s. North winds 10-15mph with gusts to 30mph.
Saturday: Mostly sunny with lows in the mid 20’s to low 30’s and highs in the low to mid 60’s. SW winds 10-15mph with gusts to 20mph.
Sunday-Monday: Mostly sunny with lows in the upper 20’s to low 30’s and highs in upper 60’s to low 70’s. SW winds 10-15mph with gusts to 20mph.
Tuesday-Wednesday: Partly cloudy with lows in the upper 20’s to mid 30’s and highs in the mid to upper 60’s. SW winds 10-15mph with gusts to 20mph. A tiny chance for afternoon showers and thunderstorms.
