At Stevens Field the high temperature yesterday afternoon was 49 and the low this morning was 17. The cold spots got down to around 10, but most of us were in the mid to high teens. Humidity bottomed out yesterday at 28%.
The peak wind at Stevens Field yesterday afternoon was 26mph.
|Average High||Record High / Year||Average Low||Record Low / Year|
|55||69 / 1990||21||6 / 1989|
Precipitation summary… There wasn’t much additional precip yesterday. Moisture decreased and the trough weakened as it moved through later in the day.
I estimate that Wolf Creek ended up with 6-8”.
The Trail Springs fire, Mill Creek 2 fire, and Bear Creek fire have been less active due to cooler temps and more moisture.
There is nothing on radar in our area this morning.
*** Chilly mornings, lots of sun, and a warming trend this week. ***
Monday through Sunday… High pressure will build over the southwest US and force storms to track to our north. We will see lots of blue sky with occasional patches of clouds, light winds, and a warming trend.
Winds… Afternoon gusts will be in the 10-15mph range. Sunday winds will be a little stronger in the 15-20mph range.
Temps… Today highs will be low to high 40s and lows will be in the low teens to low 20s. Tuesday highs will be in the high 40s to mid-50s and lows will be in the mid-teens to mid-20s. Wednesday highs will be in the low to high 50s and lows will be in the high teens to high 20s. Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday highs will be in the mid-50s to low 60s and lows will be in the low 20s to low 30s.
The next system?… Sadly, I don’t see anything to get excited about for the next 2 weeks.
I’ll do an October Summary and November Outlook on Wednesday. Mark takes over forecasting duties tomorrow.
