Continued warm temperatures for the week ahead

Thursday, September 13, 2018

The current warm temperatures running 5 to 10 degrees above the 73 F average for Steamboat Springs will continue during the next week. Our area is sandwiched between a a large area of low pressure off the West Coast and a sprawling ridge of high pressure over the southeast, which incidentally will keep hurricane Florence sheltered from the jet stream and lead to very slow storm movement and likely catastrophic flooding over and near the Carolinas through the weekend.

The large West Coast area of low pressure will lift to the northeast in pieces through the weekend, and this will help reduce the highest winds over our area for several days as the jet stream lifts northward, though some breezy afternoon winds will persist. As the upper level flow shifts to the south, some sparse moisture is forecast to move northward across Colorado late Sunday, and we may see a small chance of showers on Monday that will likely produce more wind than rain.

More incoming Pacific energy reloads the area of low pressure off the West Coast, and some energy rounding the base of the system looks to cross the Great Basin and drag a weak cool front across northern Colorado later Wednesday. Unfortunately, the front is forecast to be dry and windy.

Winds should slacken for the end of the work week with continued warm temperatures before another dry and likely windy cool front is forecast to move through northern Colorado early the following weekend.
