Quiet weather ahead

Thursday, December 13, 2018

After the Steamboat Ski Area reported 11” at mid-mountain and 12” up top this Thursday morning, it looks like our very active winter-like pattern during the past month is going to take a break , with only weak storm systems for Saturday and Tuesday interrupting the warm and sunny weather expected for the upcoming week.

A building ridge of high pressure over the western states will keep the skies clear tonight and tomorrow, with low temperatures below zero by Friday morning over the freshly fallen snow cover giving way to a beautifully sunny day.

Well see some clouds on Saturday as a weak Pacific storm rides up and over the ridge of high pressure and grazes northern Colorado, but sunny skies and warm temperatures with highs above our 28 F average are on tap for Sunday and Monday.

Another stronger Pacific storm is forecast to cross the West Coast around Monday, but the stubborn western ridge forces the storm to split as it approaches our area on Tuesday. At this point, we may see some clouds on Tuesday and possibly Wednesday as part of what is left of the storm slowly moves across Colorado, but no precipitation for our area is expected.

The western ridge of high pressure then rebuilds for the end of the work week and heading into the following weekend for a continuation of the warm and dry weather.

Stop battling cold feet! I’ve used the awesome Hotronic foot warmers from their beginnings, and can honestly say that each iteration of the product is better than the last. I have the S4 custom, attached to my powerstrap so they never fall off, and my toes stay warm for my entire ski day.
