Gorgeous weather to continue through the weekend

Thursday, July 4, 2024

Sunny skies and comfortable temperatures in the mid-sixties, on their way to the mid-seventies, are over Steamboat Springs this Independence Day. The gorgeous weather today will continue through the weekend along with breezy afternoons, especially on Saturday, and some clouds later Sunday.

This tranquil and very comfortable weather pattern is courtesy of dry and cool northwest flow over our area ahead of a building ridge of high pressure over the West Coast. After last month ended up as our fifteenth wettest June since 1893, with 2.86” of precipitation compared to our average of 1.58”, precipitation will be hard to come for at least a week as moisture from the south is cut off by the ridge of high pressure to our west.

So look for sunny days with comfortable high temperatures in the mid to upper-seventies, several degrees below our average of 82 F, and cool crisp nights with low temperatures several degrees below our average of 44 F.

A couple of weak waves traveling over the top of the West Coast ridge will brush our area over the weekend, with the first bringing increased afternoon breezes Saturday afternoon and the second bringing clouds by Sunday afternoon with only the slightest chance of precipitation.

The West Coast ridge is forecast to move slowly inland next week with temperatures slowly increasing toward average by Tuesday and the upper-eighties after midweek, with little hope of precipitation until the ridge of high pressure moves to our east around next weekend.

So enjoy this gorgeous summertime weather lasting through the weekend, and check back to my next regularly scheduled weather narrative on Sunday afternoon for the latest on how hot next week will be and when we may see moisture return.
