Several cool fronts bring seasonable weather for the upcoming week

Sunday, September 23, 2018

Cold air from western Canada is sliding southeastward along a building ridge of high pressure in the Gulf of Alaska, and this pattern will bring several cool fronts to the Steamboat Springs area starting overnight tonight. Currently on this Sunday, we are seeing breezy and warm southwest winds and some clouds across northwestern Colorado in advance of the first front.

There is some moisture associated with the front, and there will be the possibility of showers overnight and early Monday morning as this first cool front moves through the area. Showers may linger in the morning, but should be gone by the afternoon as we see seasonable temperatures near our 68 F average.

Low temperatures will also be around or slightly below our 32 F average, and the seasonable weather looks to continue through most of the work week as additional surges of cool air from the north keep the warmer than average temperatures experienced lately at bay.

By Friday, a storm that was caught underneath the Gulf of Alaska ridge of high pressure will finally move eastward, and is forecast to cross the northern California coast early in the weekend before moving to the north of our area late in the weekend. We’ll see a bit of a warm-up heading into and lasting through the weekend, along with breezy to windy westerly to southwesterly flow as the system passes by.
