Rambler here in the Lost Corners: The recent drop in temperatures was (alas) not accompanied by any precip to speak of (I think I might have gotten drizzled on for 5 minutes when walking the dog, and that's it). Can't tell if my side of the San Juans ended up with any snow to speak of, either. The forecast for the next 7 - 10 days is variable temps with 0% chance of precip. Normally, the monsoon doesn't show up in the 'Corners until sometime in July. I predict extremely dry out here for the next 6 - 8 weeks, at least.

It has been cool in Pueblo as well with on and off rain. Last night my central heat actually kicked on as the temperature dropped to 66 degrees in the house. I am not sure if it will tonight but it has been cool all day.

I didn't want to put this post on the 2013 fire thread, but for the next couple days both Mesa and Delta Counties will have conditions that are ripe for starting a fire. From I-70 south through Mesa and Delta counties, the winds are going to be blowing a consistent 20-25 m.p.h., with gusts up to 40 m.p.h., according the News11 KKCO. And it will be sunny and dry through the Memorial Day weekend. Red flag warnings are up for both counties.

Letís be careful out there, everyone. The last thing we need is another big fire out here. Iím staying home this weekend, but plan to go camping for a day or 2 or 3 starting next Tuesday when the crowds are gone and the temps are predicted to be in the high 70ís.

Partly cloudy with a cool breeze from the north here in Brighton today. It's definitely warm enough for short sleeves but there's that slight touch of cool air to remind you that spring is a transitional season before the real heat of summer sets in.

It's been in the mid 70's here, lows at night in the 40's. Cool breezes. Had some friends camping up on Owl Creek Pass, had to come back it was 28 up there at night. This is great weather!

Upper 70's for the Lost Corners. I haven't yet adjusted to the warmer temps - was just out doing a little gardening, but the warmth drove me indoors for some iced tea. Temps in the 70's are also forecast for us this coming week. We get to have a fire advisory in our forecast. Lucky us.

The National Weather Service in Grand Junction has issued a Fire
Weather Watch for gusty winds... low humidity... and dry fuels...
which is in effect from Tuesday afternoon through Tuesday
evening.

* Affected area... in Colorado... fire weather zone 207 Durango
forecast area.

* Winds... southwest 10 to 20 mph with gusts of 30 to 35 mph.

* Relative humidity... 10 to 15 percent.

* Impacts... gusty winds... low humidity... and dry fuels
will combine to produce critical fire weather conditions and
rapid fire growth on any wildfires or prescribed Burns... and
agricultural Burns.
Oh, and the pinto bean growers continue to be very unhappy campers. There's going to be a meeting in the Cortez City Hall with a presentation by the State Climatologist or someone of that ilk. It's open to all, and I'm thinking of attending just to get some idea of what we're up against this coming summer.

A moist cold front over northeast Utah will spread across northwest Colorado today with showers and a few thunderstorms developing today. The cold front will move across southeast Utah and southwest Colorado this evening. Gusty southwest winds will develop ahead of this cold front, bringing critical fire weather conditions to the lower elevations of extreme southwest Colorado, where a Red Flag Warning is in effect from noon to 7 PM. Cooler with unsettled weather is expected on Wednesday.

38 degrees and clouds this morning.

A moist low pressure trough will be over western Colorado today. This will bring numerous showers with isolated thunderstorms to northwest Colorado. A dusting of wet snow will be possible over the mountain passes this morning with very light accumulations. The threat for showers will be less across the south, although scattered showers are expected for the San Juan mountains. For the far southern valleys, very windy conditions will occur with some gusts to 35 mph.

The cooler weather is certainly welcome-by me anyway! I was at JUCO last night and right after the last game was over we got a decent shower for about 15 minutes. It'll be hitting 100 in Mesa County soon enough, thank you!

NOTE>>>> East of Junction they got more than just a shower-according to KKCO 11 News, I-70 in DeBeque canyon has the eastbound lane shut down due to a rockslide. This has been a problem for C-Dot for some time, this particular area.
