Steamboat Springs area short term weather forecast from Thursday night

Thursday, April 7, 2016

After another warm and mostly sunny spring day Friday, a possibly prolonged period of relatively warm and unsettled weather starts Closing Weekend and extends through the following week.

A piece of the just-passed Tuesday storm, left behind and loitering west of Baja, is forecast to be pushed just south of our area Friday night by another splitting Pacific storm upstream. This storm will be warm due its vacation west of Baja, bringing afternoon clouds and a chance of rain showers to the valley and snow showers to the higher elevations Friday night with little or no accumulations.

The southern part of the split Pacific storm will bring more low elevations rain showers and higher elevations snow showers during the day Saturday as it crosses the southern California coast and enters the Great Basin.

As the storm moves slowly across the southern Great Basin on Sunday, there will likely be a weak cool front associated with the northern stream moving across our area later in the day and into the evening Sunday. These two features may phase to increase the chance and intensity of showers for a time later in the day Sunday.

More afternoon showers are forecast for Monday as another warm Pacific storm moves along the U.S - Mexican border early in the work week.
