Next storm first brings wind followed by precipitation heading into the weekend

Monday, September 18, 2017

Temporally sandwiched between hurricane Jose, currently threatening the New England Coast, and hurricane Maria, which may threaten a broader portion of the East Coast next week, a large and potent storm from the Gulf Of Alaska is currently crossing the Pacific Northwest coast.

After a relatively warm and dry Monday in the Steamboat Springs area, conditions will become breezy to windy from the west and southwest on Tuesday as the fairly dry first part of the splitting storm moves north of our area tomorrow afternoon or evening. Precipitation now looks to reach only as far south as the Wyoming border, so cooler temperatures with continued dry and breezy conditions are expected on Wednesday.

Several additional waves of energy will move through the storm, creating a complicated forecast that will likely evolve as we move toward the weekend. Right now, the first of these waves for midweek looks to largely keep the storm to our northwest, perhaps pulling in some drier and warmer air over Colorado for Thursday.

By Friday, another wave traveling around the storm to our northwest gets close enough to our area to increase the chance of storms for later in the day.

On Saturday and continuing into early next week, additional waves of energy move the storm to the east while elongating the storm to the southwest, which is forecast to bring several days of cool and showery conditions to the Yampa Valley with some snows at the higher elevations.
