Breezy in the afternoon with west to northwest winds gusting to 25 mph in the valleys and around 40 mph on the mountain creating the possibility of blowing snow.

Steamboat Springs area short term weather forecast from Friday night

Friday, February 12, 2016

We have one more nice day on Saturday before the next storm spreads clouds over the area late Saturday and increases the chance of snow showers in the high valleys and mountains by early Sunday morning.

Friday night: Partly cloudy with lows in the single digits in Craig and around 10 in Steamboat.

Saturday: Mostly sunny with highs in the 30’s

Saturday night: Partly cloudy becoming mostly cloudy ahead of the next storm, with snow showers possible late in Steamboat and on the mountain. Lows in the single digits in Craig and teens in Steamboat.

Moderate storms bookend the following week

After a sunny Friday and Saturday, a wave in northwest flow brings some moisture and cool air over the Steamboat Springs area Sunday, beginning snows that will last through Monday night. Amounts are uncertain as models are wavering on the strength of this wave and its southern extent, but right now it looks like 3-6” may be reported on the Monday morning ski report, with an additional 1-4” during the rest of Monday.

There may be lingering clouds and possible snow showers early Tuesday behind the wave, but the Great Basin ridge builds over us after that, bringing warm, dry air and sunny skies back over the area by later Tuesday into Wednesday.

A stronger storm over the Pacific is forecast to cross the California coast midweek and spread clouds over our area by Wednesday night and bring snows to the area as soon as early Thursday. There is disagreement among the models as to the strength of this storm, but early forecast amounts by Friday morning are in the 6-12” range.
