Precipitation summary… There has been no measurable precip reported recently.
Pagosa Country Fall Color update…
I estimate our fall colors to be in the 20-50% range. Some areas like the East Fork are near the top of that range, while others like Plumtaw are near the bottom of that range. There’s been a noticeable change over the last few days, so I think we’ll peak within the next week. This weekend and next weekend should both be great!
There is no rain indicated on radar in our area this evening.
*** The cold spots will dip below freezing each night. ***
Tonight through Tuesday afternoon… High pressure over the west US will give us lots of sun, dry weather, and pleasant fall temps. Late Saturday afternoon a little surge of moisture could kick up a scattered shower over the mountains.
Winds… Will peak around 15mph in the afternoons. Winds Tuesday afternoon will be a little stronger in the 15-20mph range.
Temps… Highs will be in the high 60s to mid-70s and lows will be in the high 20s to high 30s.
Tuesday night through Thursday afternoon… A weak trough will move through from the northwest. Northwest is not a favorable trajectory for us and there won’t be much moisture, so my expectations are low. We’ll see a few more clouds and spotty showers, mostly over the mountains.
Winds… Gusts Wednesday afternoon will be in the 20-30mph range and then they’ll drop a little Thursday into the 15-20mph range.
Temps… Highs will be in the mid-50s to low 60s and lows will be in the high 20s to high 30s.
Mark will take over on Sunday.
