Warm and mostly sunny through Thanksgiving weekend except for Friday

Wednesday, November 22, 2017

Moisture rotating through a ridge of high pressure centered over the western states has brought clouds to the Steamboat Springs area today. Some light rain showers at the lower elevations and snow showers at the higher elevations are possible through this evening before drier air pushes into Colorado early Thanksgiving morning.

Warm temperatures and mostly sunny skies are expected for Thanksgiving Day before a weakening and quickly moving storm grazes northern Colorado on Friday. Temperatures will fall from Thursday under cloudy skies, and there may be some high elevation snow showers and low elevations rain showers during the day and overnight on Friday.

I spend a lot of time skiing and mountain biking, depending on the season, and these are some of the products that have worked very well for me. Consider purchasing them through these links as I will earn a small commission that will help me keep SnowAlarm running. And feel free to contact me if you would like to see your product endorsed.

You may not know it, but you want progressive flex in your ski boots. This allows the tongue of the boot to maintain contact with your shin through all phases of the turn. Comfort and control with no sore shins!

The Booster Strap is made of high strength elastomeric webbing with an anti-slip micro-adjustable cam buckle. The elastomer allows flexibility, vibration and shock damping. The cam buckle assures a better fit and more comfort.
The Booster Strap elastically fastens together the leg and the ski boot and provides direct ski control so the skis will start turning sooner and will end the turn faster. The graded elasticity of the product allows skiers to choose the reaction speeds that best suit their technical and physical characteristics and skiing ability.

I’ve found these work best in powder, as it keeps the cold snow from touching the boot plastic and sucking heat away from the interior. However, they do cover the lowest two boot buckles, so this accessory is not for those who like to (or need to!) fiddle with the buckles during the day.

  • Helps retain up to +20 degrees inside the boot
  • Includes thermal reflective adhesive strips for additional insulation from inside the boot
  • Adjustable Velcro heel strap for ease of use and adjustment
  • Side abrasion resistant patches for durability and wear
  • Wind and water resistant neoprene material

Drier and warmer air follows the small storm for Saturday as skies turn sunnier through the day. Sunday should be even warmer and sunnier than Saturday ahead of our next weather-maker currently timed for around Monday.

Though much cooler temperatures are very likely for the beginning of the work week, there is uncertainty regarding the strength of the storm and its southern extent as it splits while crossing the West Coast on Sunday. The American GFS has kept the storm more consolidated with quick-moving snow showers for Monday and Tuesday, while the European ECMWF has now dumped more energy and moisture into the southern part of the storm. The European solution delays the arrival of the cool air till early Tuesday as it brings a stronger and slower moving storm across the Great Basin. This solution favors more significant snows over our area for Tuesday and Wednesday.

Both models indicated a short break in our weather around Thursday before possibly turning unsettled again around the following weekend.
