Beautiful late summer weather on tap for most of the next week

Monday, September 5, 2016

Cool nights and warm mostly sunny days will be the rule through the work week and lasting for most of next weekend. A trough to our west in the Great Basin will remain quasi-stationary for the beginning of this period, occasionally ejecting waves of energy that will drag shallow and dry cool fronts through or just north of the Steamboat Springs area. The strong early September sun will allow temperatures to quickly recover from the cool mornings.

The Great Basin trough will be ejected to our north by a couple of Pacific waves late in work week, with the second wave looking to deepen as it approaches our area late in the weekend. There may be some moisture that is drawn northward in the southwest flow ahead of the storm around Sunday with a well defined cold front currently advertised for Monday. The timing and strength of the front will no doubt change as the models get a better handle on the storm, but at this point the American GFS says it may be cold enough for some snow at the top of Mt. Werner.
