Mostly dry with mid-eighties by midweek

Sunday, June 9, 2024

Sunny skies and temperatures in the mid-seventies, on their way to the low eighties, are over the Steamboat Springs area this Sunday noon. Some sparse clouds may produce a shower or two on Monday before the warmest temperatures of the season in the mid-eighties appear by midweek. Cooler and wetter weather may arrive at the end of the workweek and the start of next weekend.

An eddy of low pressure from off the coast of Baja is now moving across the Desert Southwest thanks to a wave of low pressure crossing the West Coast. The wave is forecast to split, with the northern end grazing our area by Monday night and the southern end forming another eddy off the coast of southern California.

The Baja eddy originally looked like it would move close enough to our area for showers, but now the slightly stronger northern wave will keep the eddy over southern Colorado. So precipitation today is unlikely, with a chance for a shower or two on Monday.

After high temperatures in the low-eighties today, almost ten degrees above our average of 74 F, some clouds on Monday will drop high temperatures to around eighty degrees. And those temperatures will persist on a dry Tuesday as a weak cool front from that northern wave grazes our area Monday night.

A flat ridge of high pressure behind the grazing wave to our north and ahead of the southern California eddy to our southwest will bring mostly sunny skies by midweek and the warmest temperatures of the season so far, reaching the mid-eighties on Wednesday and nudging above that on Thursday. But the record high temperature on Thursday of 89 F recorded in 1918 looks safe.

Meanwhile, a storm over the Aleutian Islands is forecast to approach the West Coast near the end of the work week and force the southern California eddy to move over the Desert Southwest and toward our area by the start of next weekend. If the remnants of the eddy move overhead as currently predicted, we could see a good chance of showers and cooler temperatures by later Friday. But that forecast may change, so be sure to check back to my next regularly scheduled weather narrative on Thursday afternoon for the latest details on the weather for next weekend.
