Warmer and drier weather ahead of another storm system for next week

Thursday, May 2, 2019

Steamboat Springs is drying out this Thursday behind an impressive spring storm that brought 3 days of rain, snow, hail, wind, thunder and cold temperatures to our area. Drier weather and warmer temperatures are expected through the weekend before another couple of storms combine to bring more inclement weather back to Colorado starting around Tuesday and lasting into the following weekend.

The previous storm brought almost 1.5” of liquid water and an inch or two of snow to Steamboat Springs, 2” of liquid water and about 8” of snow to mid-mountain, and about 2.2” of liquid water and 15” of snow to the top of Mt. Werner. Today, a weak cool front associated with a trailing wave behind the storm will keep our high temperatures below our average high of 58 F and our average low of 31 F tonight.

Temperatures will warm to near average on Friday and above average on Saturday before another weak cool front associated with a storm well to our north is dragged through our area later in the day. We may see some showers Saturday afternoon and into the overnight along with a cool Sunday morning as the front moves through. Showers may redevelop again later Sunday as temperatures warm.

Monday will likely be the last warm and mostly dry day for the work week, save for possible afternoon showers, before a couple of storms move over our area around Tuesday. Similar to this past week, we’ll again have a wet and warm storm currently between Hawaii and California merging with a much colder storm traveling through the Gulf of Alaska.

Though the details will undoubtedly change in the weather forecast models as the storms approach, another stretch of cool weather with significant precipitation is looking likely starting Tuesday and extending through at least the work week. And because the Gulf of Alaska will mix with some still very cold air over western Canada, snow will again be likely at the higher elevations and possible even down to the Yampa Valley floor at times. Stay tuned to my next weather narrative on Sunday for further details.
