Steamboat Springs area weather forecast from Friday

Friday, June 3, 2016

Weak waves passing to our north and east tonight and tomorrow night may bring some mid and high clouds, but mostly dry conditions and warming temperatures from near normal to above normal can be expected through the end of the weekend.

There will be an increased chance of afternoon showers Sunday afternoon as atmospheric moisture is trapped between a developing trough over the central to eastern US and and the western ridge.

The chance of mostly afternoon showers will increase further on Monday as another weak wave again skirts our area early Monday.

Surprisingly, an active jet stream continues across the Pacific, likely reinforced by still cold air in Siberia and northern Canada that rotates southward across the northern Pacific. The end result is a battle over the western US as a building ridge is moderated by incoming Pacific energy.

A weak Pacific storm forecast to cross the central California coast late in the weekend will be the first test of the resiliency of the ridge. The storm is forecast to move through the ridge and over our area later Tuesday or early Wednesday. The storm is fairly dry, so the main effect may be the continuation of afternoon showers, though there may be increasing clouds ahead of wave.

After that, a much stronger storm approaches the West Coast midweek. Current model have the storm weakening as it moves through the western ridge and keeps the storm north of our area, possibly allowing temperatures to reach their warmest readings of the year.

Several weak waves passing to our north may bring some high clouds, but mostly dry conditions and warming temperatures from near normal to above normal can be expected through the end of the weekend.

There will be an increased chance of afternoon showers Sunday and Monday afternoons as atmospheric moisture is trapped between a developing trough over the central to eastern US and and the western ridge.

A weak Pacific storm forecast to cross the central California coast late in the weekend will be the first test of the resiliency of the ridge. The ECMWF has trended toward the AVN solution and moves the weak storm through the ridge and over our area later Tuesday or Wednesday. The storm is fairly dry, so the main effect may be the continuation of afternoon showers, though there may be increasing clouds ahead of wave.

After that, a much stronger storm approaches the West Coast midweek. Current model trends keep the storm north of us, but windy to very windy conditions may occur as the storm approaches by the end of the work week.

Mostly dry conditions and warming temperatures from near normal to above normal can be expected through the rest of the work week and the first part of the weekend.

There will be an increased chance of afternoon showers Sunday and Monday afternoons as atmospheric moisture is trapped between a developing trough over the central to eastern US and and the western ridge.

Steamboat Springs area weather forecast from Tuesday

Tuesday, May 31, 2016

Our transition to summer is still on track, and afternoon temperatures should be rising towards the weekend as a strong western ridge, not seen since the dry spell in February, builds over the Great Basin.

The main weather concern will be the usual afternoon showers that may appear Sunday and Monday afternoons as atmospheric moisture is trapped between a developing trough over the central to eastern US and and the western ridge.

Surprisingly though, an active jet stream continues across the Pacific, likely reinforced by still cold air in Siberia and northern Canada that rotates southward across the northern Pacific. The end result is a battle over the western US as a building ridge is moderated by incoming Pacific energy.

A weak Pacific storm forecast to cross the central California coast late in the weekend will be the first test of the resiliency of the ridge. There is model disagreement with the ECMWF keeping the storm west and north of our area as it rides up the western side of the ridge. The AVN, on the other hand, is now more aggressive in moving the storm through the ridge and over our area later Tuesday or Wednesday, bringing the chance of warm precipitation to the region.

Steamboat Springs area weather forecast from Monday

Monday, May 30, 2016

Our persistently unsettled spring weather is finally on its way out, though an approaching storm currently over Montana as of Monday afternoon will bring several more cool waves of air to northern Colorado this afternoon through Wednesday.

The first cool front will bring a chance of afternoon and early evening showers today before spreading dry air over our region later tonight. The cool air will be reinforced on Tuesday leading to a cool but mostly sunny day.

A trailing wave of cool and dry air washes over our area Tuesday night, bringing another cool start to Wednesday, but the strong June sun will allow for warmer temperatures than we’ve seen in a while by the afternoon.

Summer looks to arrive in force on Thursday, and generally beautiful and warm summertime weather looks to finally hang around for more than a day or two. Other than a weak cool front that crosses the area Friday night and leads to a chilly start to Saturday, the main weather concern will be the usual afternoon showers that may begin to appear as soon as Saturday afternoon as atmospheric moisture is trapped between a developing trough over the central to eastern US and a weak southern Pacific storm forecast to cross the central California coast late in the weekend.

Surprisingly though, an active jet stream continues across the Pacific, likely reinforced by still cold air in Siberia and northern Canada that rotates southward across the northern Pacific. The end result is a battle over the western US as a building ridge is moderated by incoming Pacific energy. Current models keep the summertime weather over our area through the following work week, though there are indications that the Pacific energy will eventually penetrate the ridge and bring increasing chances of cooler air and precipitation after that.
