Steamboat Springs area short term weather forecast from Tuesday night

Tuesday, March 8, 2016

A weak wave will brush our area tomorrow afternoon and increase the chance of light rain showers in the valleys and snow showers on the hill with minimal accumulations, except perhaps under the heaviest showers.

Seasonable warm and dry weather returns for Thursday and Friday before the area may be influenced by a weak splitting storm around mid-weekend. Models are trending weaker with this storm, so right now it is looking like we may only get clouds from it.

Steamboat Springs area short term weather forecast from Monday night

Monday, March 7, 2016

As the current storm moves northeast of our area, snow showers will begin to wind down after midnight, with perhaps an inch of snow overnight in the valleys and an additional 1-4” this evening on top of the 2” mid/4” top that fell during the day today.

In spite of the unsettled weather on Tuesday, there should be periods of sun through the day with no more snow accumulations expected.

There may be continued showers for Wednesday, especially in the afternoon as a weak wave passes through the area.

Warming and drying are then forecast for the rest of the work week before a likely weak storm threatens our weather around mid-weekend.

Steamboat Springs area short term weather forecast from Sunday night

Sunday, March 6, 2016

Temperatures will cool around midnight tonight lowering snow showers to the valley floors. Likely snow showers will persist through the day Monday and some of these may produce moderate to locally heavy snowfall for a brief time. Snow will likely quickly melt in the valleys during the day Monday though there may be short-lived accumulations around the heaviest showers. Snow will accumulate on the hill and I would expect 3-6” by midnight Monday with possibly more at the higher elevations.

Tuesday is forecast to be unsettled as we are caught between the departing storm to our northeast and a large cutoff storm to our south.

Wednesday initially looked dry, but current model runs have a quick-moving wave bringing the chance of afternoon showers to the area.

Temperatures rebound by Thursday and Friday as dry air moves over the area, though a weak storm may affect the weather around mid-weekend.
