Increasing winds around a midweek cool front

Sunday, September 16, 2018

The chances for wetting rains remain low for the Steamboat Springs area this following week, and only a cool front currently timed for around midweek will briefly interrupt the string of afternoon temperatures that have been over 10 degrees above our current 71 F average.

Colorado will see some increasing mid and upper-level moisture in continued southwest flow ahead of a cool front currently timed for late Wednesday or early Thursday. We’ll see some clouds and perhaps some showers producing more wind than rain on Monday, Tuesday and especially Wednesday before the cool front passes through northern Colorado. And overnight lows will also stay warm and above our 35 F average as the atmospheric moisture acts like an insulating blanket overnight.

Unfortunately, the cool front will be dry, and winds will increase and turn first to the west around frontal passage and then northwest on Thursday. We will see cooler temperatures on Thursday that may even stay a few degrees below our average high, with overnight lows by Friday morning dropping below our average. Frost will be possible, and those gardeners lucky enough to have some late summer fruit will want to protect their plants susceptible to freezing temperatures.

Another round of incoming Pacific energy will redevelop the area of low pressure off the West Coast late in the work week, swinging our winds back to the southwest and causing temperatures to rebound to above average by Friday. This looks to last through the weekend and into the following work week.
