O’Neal Park cooled to 40F. That combined with moisture from melting yesterday and resulted in areas of fog and beautiful hoar frost on the trees.

|Record High / Year
|Record Low / Year
|59 / 1967
|-13 / 1966
Precipitation summary… There hasn’t been any sort of precipitation in the last 24 hours.
Water vapor satellite this afternoon – there is a weak ridge to our west that is allowing some intermittent moisture to spill over it. Both on Wednesday and again on Friday we could see a weak trof move through giving us more clouds and very isolated snow showers.
There is nothing on radar in our area this afternoon.
*** Mostly sunny with near average temps the rest of the week. ***
*** More active weather pattern starting next week. ***
Monday afternoon through Friday… Ridging will take over and give us lots of sun and near average temps. A weak trof slips over the ridge approaching us from the northwest on Wednesday and Friday so will see a few more clouds those afternoons before the ridge builds back in. We could see an isolated snowshower over the mountains on Wednesday and Friday and Wolf Creek could pick up a few inches of snow, too.
Winds… Peaks will be around 10mph each afternoon.
Temps… Highs Monday through Friday will be in the upper-30s to mid 40s and lows will be in the mid-single digits to mid-teens.
Monday and beyond… The weather pattern will get more active. Details are a little hazy at this time. Hopefully it is more in focus on Wednesday.
I’ll have my next update out late Wednesday afternoon. In the meantime get out and play in the snow under the big beautiful blue skies!
