Gorgeous weekend ahead

Thursday, April 11, 2024

Temperatures are near forty degrees in the town of Steamboat Springs and mid-twenties near the top of the Steamboat Resort under brilliant blue skies late this Thursday morning. And as springlike as today will be, even warmer temperatures and continued mostly sunny skies are on tap for a gorgeous weekend.

Before getting to what will be a rare-this-winter easy weather forecast, the mystery of the 10-meter vs. 12-meter wind discrepancy at the Storm Peak Lab last Saturday has been resolved. The lab director confirmed that rime ice formed on the lowest sensor leading to inaccurate wind speed and direction measurements.

There will be no chance of that happening again through the weekend as a ridge of high pressure brings mostly sunny skies and high temperatures in town in the sixties, about ten degrees above our rapidly rising average temperature of 54 F.

A weak and diffuse area of low pressure currently approaching southern California is forecast to scoot through the ridge of high pressure and bring some clouds overhead later Friday into Saturday morning. But that won’t affect the gorgeous spring weather arriving in time for all the events during the eariler-scheduled-and-now-delayed Closing Weekend at the Steamboat Resort.

Enjoy the spectacular weather through the weekend as it won’t last! It is springtime in the Rockies after all, which means our next storm is currently brewing in the Gulf of Alaska. Like some past storms, this one is forecast to slide southward along the West Coast early in the weekend and briefly form an eddy before moving toward our area early in the work week.

So be sure to check back to my next regularly scheduled weather narrative on Sunday afternoon where I’ll have details on what may be a week of almost daily precipitation chances.
