Crestone Weather Notes For 2018

 

The Crestone/Baca weather station saw temperatures above normal in January along with little snowfall. Two record high temperatures were met, first on January 20, when the high for the day tied the record high for the date at 52 which was first reached in 1986. Then another record high temperature was tied on January 9, when the high climbed to 55. This reading tied for the third highest temperature ever seen in January and broke the record for the earliest date to see such warmth in the month (or year).

 

This was only the third January ever where the temperature didn't go below zero in the month. It was also the first time in 14 years that the temp didn't go below zero in January.

 

Nothing to exciting to report for February other than it was much warmer than normal and it was the eight driest February on record, with very little snow seen.

 

At 245pm on March 15, it started to snow with the temp at 47 degrees, which for Crestone isn't that unusual, as it has happen several times in the past before with similar temperatures.

 

The first trace of rain for 2018 happened on April 6, and then the first measurable rain of the year followed on April 8.

Blowing dust on April 12, then a sand/dust storm hit on April 17.
