Cold but mostly dry for Halloween

Sunday, October 28, 2018

Ahead of a cold but mostly dry Gulf of Alaska storm that will move piecemeal over the west starting today, warm temperatures well above our 52 F average and breezy westerly winds will grace the Steamboat Springs area this Sunday and most of Monday, with clouds encroaching on our region during the day Monday in advance of the storm.

The warm temperatures will disappear after Monday as a couple of dry cold fronts pass through our area starting around later Monday afternoon or overnight. The high temperature for Tuesday will be below average, and the second front Tuesday night will bring even cooler temperatures for Wednesday. Though temperatures will be cold enough for any precipitation to fall as snow over the Yampa Valley, there is only a chance of light snow showers for Tuesday, with Halloween likely remaining dry.

Meanwhile, a ridge of high pressure is forecast to build in the Gulf of Alaska by midweek behind the departing storm, and a couple of waves of Pacific energy and moisture traveling over the top of the ridge will move over our area on Thursday and Friday. We should see a good chance of light snow showers during the day Thursday and a better chance from Thursday night through Friday night in continued below average temperatures before a break occurs heading into the early part of next weekend.

Though next weekend may start warmer and drier, additional Pacific energy moves across the west in northwest flow brings more chances for precipitation around mid-weekend. Unsettled and cool weather in generally northwest flow looks to continue into the following work week as well.
