|Average High||Record High / Year||Average Low||Record Low / Year|
|52||70 / 1989||17||-10 / 1940|
Precipitation summary… A few spotty snowflakes fell Thursday and Friday, but they didn’t amount to anything. Wolf Creek got around an inch.
The Trail Springs fire, Mill Creek 2 fire, and Bear Creek fire have been less active.
There is nothing on radar in our area this morning.
*** Dry through Wednesday. ***
*** More active weather pattern the second half of next week. ***
Saturday through Wednesday… Ridging is currently in control. The ridge will weaken and move to our east by late Tuesday. We’ll see a lot of blue sky and sun through Monday and then clouds will increase Tuesday and Wednesday. Winds will be light, and we’ll stay dry. Starting tomorrow, temps will be about 5 degrees above normal.
Winds… Each afternoon winds will peak around 15mph.
Temps… Saturday highs will be in the high 40s to high 50s and lows will be in the high teens to high 20s. Sunday through Wednesday highs will be in the mid-50s to low 60s and lows will be in the low 20s to low 30s.
Wednesday night through Sunday… A low-pressure system will spin off the California coast Wednesday through Friday and then start moving east over the weekend. It will push pieces of energy through our area causing periods of showers.
A long southwest fetch means this system will have warmer air and higher snow levels. I think snow levels will be mostly above 9,000ft, but could briefly drop down to 7,500-8,000ft in the early morning hours each day.
Rough first guess snow amounts:
Valley below 8,500ft: 0-1”
* At this point, my forecast confidence in the details – timing and precip amounts – is low. I’ll dial specifics in as the data gets better. *
My next post will be on Monday.
