Forecasts trending drier for the weekend and next week

Thursday, October 13, 2016

Cool air from western Canada deposited in the Gulf of Alaska has created persistently stormy weather there. Though a storm is currently pounding the Pacific Northwest, models have trended weaker with any energy forecast to cross the Great Basin and affect the Steamboat Springs area for the weekend and next week. As a result, Friday will be dry with breezy west to southwest winds as the Pacific Northwest storm moves to our northwest.

Clouds will likely appear on Saturday with breezy conditions again as energy grazes our area, with showers confined to the very northwestern corner of Colorado.

Similar conditions are advertised for Sunday with less cloudiness likely.

Monday should start dry, but some energy from the Pacific makes it close enough to our area to bring a cool front through the area later in the day , threatening showers for the afternoon and into the evening.

Tuesday looks to be dry before another pulse of Pacific energy brings another mostly dry cool front through the area on Wednesday.

Models advertise the Gulf of Alaska storm elongating southward along the West Coast next week, pumping up a ridge of high pressure over the Intermountain West that should create beautiful and warm weather for the end of the work week and heading into the weekend.
