Monsoonal waves for today and tomorrow followed by a cold front early Sunday

Thursday, September 3, 2015

Two waves in the current southwesterly monsoonal flow will cross the Steamboat Springs area midday today and later-afternoon tomorrow increasing the chance of showers both days. Locally heavy rain will be a possibility today and tomorrow.

The later arrival tomorrow of the second wave may allow showers to continue overnight Friday before some drier air is forecast to be over the area Saturday, reducing the chance of showers during the day. However, a strong storm currently over the Pacific Northwest coast will move eastward through the weekend, bringing a mostly dry cold front through the area early Sunday. There may be some light showers ahead of and along the front Saturday night into Sunday morning before skies clear with noticeably cooler but very pleasant temperatures.

Dry trailing waves later Sunday, Monday and Tuesday nights will keep the cool but dry weather around through midweek before warming is forecast to occur by Wednesday afternoon. There is a possibility of smoke from the Pacific Northwest wildfires being transported over our region as the flow veers from the southwest to the west-northwest next week as well, but otherwise the weather should be classic early-September beautiful.

The cool temperatures will give way to seasonably warm days with continued cool nights for the rest of the work week. Latest numerical model runs have another wave in west-northwest flow approaching the Steamboat Springs area sometime around next weekend, so the forecast for then is uncertain.
