Pleasant weekend with late day showers ahead

Thursday, May 16, 2024

Mostly sunny skies and temperatures in the mid-sixties are over the Steamboat Springs area this Thursday mid-afternoon. Even warmer temperatures around the vaunted seventy-degree mark are in store on Friday before a cool front Friday night drops high temperatures for the rest of the weekend back to the upper sixties. And only briefly interrupting the pleasant weekend will be some chances for showers later on Saturday and Sunday.

A storm currently over Vancouver is forecast to move through Montana on Friday and drag a weak cool front through our area Friday night. Other than some breezes from the west, the front will be too late in the day to threaten a run at our first seventy-degree day of the season, which would be around five degrees above our average of 65 F.

High temperatures may fall a degree or two on Saturday behind the front, with a healthy chance of afternoon and overnight showers as some moisture and energy currently off the coast of California moves overhead.

Meanwhile, a colder and stronger storm is forecast to replace the departed Vancouver storm later on Saturday. Though that storm will be to our northwest on Sunday, winds from the southwest ahead of the storm will carry another batch of energy and moisture from off the coast of California over our area for low shower chances Sunday afternoon and evening

This second storm is forecast to bring some cooler and unsettled weather to our area early next week, with current forecasts timing a more robust cool front for later Monday. We may sneak in another pleasant spring day if the front passes through late in the day, and I’ll have a better idea about that timing in my next regularly scheduled weather narrative on Sunday afternoon.
