A two part storm will begin snow again tonight before eventually ending by Thursday morning. Clear weather follows for the end of the work week before a weekend storm approaches.
Tuesday night: Snow should start around midnight, with around an inch in Craig, 1-3” in Steamboat and 2-5” expected for the Wednesday morning ski report. Lows around 10.
Wednesday: Snow will taper off in the morning as the first part of the storm moves through, but increase again in the afternoon as the second stronger storm moves over the area Wednesday night. 1-3” of snow expected in Craig, 2-4” in Steamboat and 4-8” on the mountain with highs in the 20’s in the valleys and near 20 at mid-mountain.
Wednesday night: Temperatures will cool noticeably as snow ends in the valleys, with lows around zero in Craig, and single digits for Steamboat. Another 2-4” of very low-density snow will occur on the mountain which will produce a 6-12” 24-hour Thursday morning ski report.
Thursday: The sun will appear as lingering snow showers end in the morning for the valleys and the afternoon for the mountain. Highs around 20 in the valleys and teens for mid-mountain.
Thursday night: Clear and very cold as temperature inversions reform in the valleys. Lows in the minus teens for Craig and around zero for Steamboat.
