Weak cool front brings a chance of showers mid-weekend

Thursday, September 6, 2018

The broad storm system that was over the southwestern quarter of the U.S. will grudgingly move east of the Steamboat Springs area this Thursday, with warming and drying expected for the following week, except for a weak cool front that will bring a chance of showers later Saturday into Sunday.

First, however, the tail end of the storm system contains a weak circulation that will move over our area today, giving us another chance of showers this afternoon and evening, similar to yesterday.

Drier air filters into the area behind the departing storm for Friday and Saturday with daytime temperatures warming above our 75 F average. Ahead of a weak cool front timed for overnight Saturday or early Sunday, we should see increased chances for showers late in the day Saturday and overnight.

Any showers should end by midday Sunday as much drier air invades from the west ahead of a strong and developing storm off the Pacific Northwest coast. Pieces of the storm eject well to our northwest even while additional cold air moving through the Gulf of Alaska keeps the storm spinning near the coast, and the end result for our area is mostly dry air and continued warm temperatures in southwest flow.

We may see slight shower chances later Monday as a cool front races well north of our area, but sunny skies should predominate for the rest of the work week as pieces of the northwest storm sink southward along the West Coast. This will force the jet stream southward and closer to our area, bringing warm and windy southwest flow during the work week, especially around midweek.

While the weather will be rather quiet for us, look to the east for excitement as current Category 3 hurricane Florence approaches the East Coast. The path of the hurricane as it nears the coast is still very much in question, though at this point the entire mid-Atlantic and northeastern seaboard is threatened after mid-week and heading into next weekend.
