Steamboat Springs area short term weather forecast from Thursday night

Thursday, March 10, 2016

There may be periods of high clouds, but mostly sunny skies with warm temperatures will prevail for Friday.

A compact storm crosses the California coast around Friday night and this may affect our weather for Saturday. Model trends initially had the storm to our south, but current forecasts have rain showers in the valley and snow showers on the hill by Saturday afternoon. If the storm stays on its current projected track, we may see 1-4” of snow on the hill by Sunday morning.

A much larger and more intense storm approaches the Pacific Northwest around mid-weekend. An ejecting wave on Sunday will stay mostly north of our area but will bring the possibility of light showers for later in the day and evening.

The parent storm then moves ashore and looks to bring full-on winter conditions to our area as soon as Monday. Confidence is increasing that this will be a long duration event comprised of several waves of moderate to heavy snowfall that will last through the work week. Furthermore, this will be a cold storm that will bring significant snow to the valleys and will likely adversely impact I-70 and US-40 at times. Snow amounts are likely to be impressive by this time next week.
