*** Pagosa Weather is doing a public presentation with the San Juan Outdoor Club on Wednesday, 31 May. Social half-hour will start at 6pm and our talk will begin around 6:40pm. Location is the PLPOA Club House, 230 Port Ave. Hope to see you there! ***
At Stevens Field the high temperature yesterday afternoon was 69, the low this morning was 32, and humidity bottomed out at 13% yesterday afternoon.
* I hope your plants were protected last night. Many of us got below freezing. There were quite a few areas in the upper 20s this morning. *
The peak wind at Stevens Field yesterday afternoon was 28mph. Our peak wind yesterday afternoon in O’Neal Park was also 28mph.
*** The average last freeze is 31 May. Temps can still drop below freezing into the third week of June with average lows remaining in the mid-30s. ***
|Average High||Record High / Year||Average Low||Record Low / Year|
|71||85 / 1910||32||17 / 1916|
Precipitation summary… No measurable precip was reported in the last 24 hours.
Radar this afternoon – Nothing significant in the Four Corners area.
*** The cold spots will be near freezing each morning until Wednesday. ***
*** A prescribed burn was started today 10 miles northeast of Bayfield. Over the next 24 hours winds at 10,000ft will fluctuate between southwest and northwest so smoke could move into the Pagosa area. ***
Rest of today through Tuesday… A more typical springtime dry, southwest flow pattern has set up. There is a slight chance for a spotty afternoon shower or thunderstorm over the mountains.
Temps… Highs will be in the high 60s to high 70s and lows will be 30-40. *** The cold spots will be near freezing each morning. ***
Winds… Afternoons gusts will peak in the 15-20mph range. On Tuesday, the windy spots could hit 25mph.
Wednesday through next Sunday… Precipitable water, a measure of moisture, and Cape, a measure of instability, will both increase but I expect them to be marginal for showers and thunderstorms. I just see a 30-40% chance of afternoon showers and thunderstorms each afternoon.
Temps… Highs will be in the mid-60s to mid-70s, and lows will be in the mid-30s to mid-40s.
Winds… Afternoon gusts will mostly be in the 15-20mph range. However, isolated gusts 25-35mph are possible near showers and thunderstorms.
My next post will be Tuesday afternoon.
