Steamboat Springs area short term weather forecast from Monday night
Monday, April 4, 2016
A weak front will pass through the area tonight bringing breezy westerly winds and rain showers to the valleys and snow showers to the hill after midnight, possibly leaving an inch or two on the mountain by the morning ski report.
A quick-moving storm from the Pacific Northwest passing through our area on Tuesday will bring continued snow to the mountain and snow showers to the valleys with breezy to windy northwest winds and even the possibility of some thunder in the afternoon.
Models are struggling with the southern extent of the system, but an additional 3-6” may fall on the mountain by the time the precipitation ends Tuesday evening, with little or no accumulations in the valleys.
Skies will clear and spring will return for midweek into the beginning of the weekend before a possibly prolonged period of wet and relatively warm weather starts around mid-weekend.
