Monsoon Weather Contest: How much Rain did we get?

A BIG thanks to the Springs Resort for sponsoring this soaking!

Cena Chivers Brossard is the winner of the Prize Package from The Springs Resort, our Storm Sponsor!

UPDATE: The winner of the 23′ Monsoon forecast contest is Cena Chivers Brossard with a guess of 3.23″. Cena won a Relaxing Day of VIP Soaking for 4 from The Springs Resort! It includes 4 Relaxation Terrace Passes, 4 Vitality Tonics, and $60 food & beverage credit at The Barefoot Grill for Lunch or Dinner. Huge thanks to the Springs Resort for offering such an incredible prize package.

Sadly, the monsoon season is over.  It was the second driest monsoon in the last 11 years.  In 2018 we had 2.56″ and this year we had 2.68 precip total for July, August, and September. Let’s hope our El Nino winter turns around our deteriorating drought condition. I’ll have the winter outlook post out this evening.

May 21st: This contest is closed to any new guesses. Good luck to everyone!

The contest… Forecast the amount of measured rain that Pagosa Springs will receive during the three months of monsoon season from July through September to the nearest 100th of an inch.

As a starting point, you might want to attend our presentation on Thursday at the library. NOAA will release the 2023 Hurricane season forecast on Thursday, too! It is a key piece of evidence for the seasonal forecast. All we know at this point is the first named storm is Arleen. I’ll have the post on our monsoon season out next week.

I grew up in Montana where my love of the mountains is rooted. I was in the Air Force, forecasting aviation weather, for 24 years. I had eight assignments and my favorites were Colorado, Alaska, Korea, and Germany. I deployed a number of times including to Iraq and Afghanistan. After RV traveling for nine years, we found paradise in Pagosa. Here we enjoy playing outside in the spectacular San Juan mountains!
