Crestone Weather Notes For 2019
This past January was the seventh coldest January (or 7th coldest month period), ever in the Crestone Baca.
Most of the foothills around the greater Crestone/Baca area saw record snowfall on February 19. At the weather station, a new record for the date was broken when 6.0 inches of snow fell, breaking the old mark of 5.0 inches, set back in 1991.
The first trace of rain in 2019 is seen early this year, just before 6pm on March 2, then it changed quickly to snow pellets minutes later. March 2 was also the first day of 2019 where the temperature stayed above freezing for the entire 24 hour period and the first day since October 24, 2018 that we didn't see freezing temperatures occur.
The first measurable rain of 2019 also comes early this year, as this occurs on March 11, be it only .01 of an inch.
Both record precipitation and snowfall fell on March 13. The 0.21" of precip that fell broke the old record for the date of .06" set in 2008. This was the second day in a row breaking the daily precip record, as the 1.32" that fell on March 12 shattered the old record for that date which was .18", set in 1999. Although the area didn't see a lot of snow fall, the 2.7" that did accumulate on March 13 was also a new record for the date, breaking the old mark of 0.4", also set in '08.
The Crestone/Baca saw a record high temperature on March 27, when the high for the day reached 67 degrees, tying the record for the day, which was first reached in 2012. Then a record low high temperature was set for March 31, when the high only reached 29 degrees. The old record was 35 degrees, set in 2000.
Nothing exciting happened in April. We did see our first day of the year with the humidity value below 10%, and the average temp was a mere .02 degrees above average.
The Crestone/Baca saw
weather records broken on 2 days in a row, on May 8
and 9th. For the 8th, both rain and snow fell with
record amounts of precip recorded, breaking the old
record for the date of 0.31 of an inch, set in 2013,
when 0.41 of an inch fell. Then for the next day,
the old record low high for May 9, which was 44
degrees, set in 2013 was shattered, when the high
was only 35 degrees.
