Steamboat Springs area short term weather forecast from Sunday night

Sunday, March 6, 2016

Temperatures will cool around midnight tonight lowering snow showers to the valley floors. Likely snow showers will persist through the day Monday and some of these may produce moderate to locally heavy snowfall for a brief time. Snow will likely quickly melt in the valleys during the day Monday though there may be short-lived accumulations around the heaviest showers. Snow will accumulate on the hill and I would expect 3-6” by midnight Monday with possibly more at the higher elevations.

Tuesday is forecast to be unsettled as we are caught between the departing storm to our northeast and a large cutoff storm to our south.

Wednesday initially looked dry, but current model runs have a quick-moving wave bringing the chance of afternoon showers to the area.

Temperatures rebound by Thursday and Friday as dry air moves over the area, though a weak storm may affect the weather around mid-weekend.

Thursday, March 3, 2016

The western ridge will hold sway over our area through Saturday, with unseasonably warm temperatures persisting even as upper and mid-level moisture moves through the ridge and brings periods of clouds, especially on the mountain. There may even be a stray snow shower on Friday on the hill as that is when the moisture will be deepest.

A parent low in the Gulf of Alaska will eject a leading wave Saturday night that will cross the West Coast early Sunday and bring storm clouds to our area around Sunday morning. Current forecast have precipitation starting by Sunday afternoon, with snow showers on the hill and rain showers in the valleys.

Precipitation will turn to all snow by Sunday night and likely last through mid-day Monday before the storm moves to our northeast.

A transient ridge moves over the area tomorrow bringing warm temperatures and mostly sunny skies, with breezy west winds in the afternoon.

A wave to our north traveling through the ridge on Friday will bring cloudier conditions for Friday and slight cooling, but only meager precipitation, if any, is expected.

Moisture hangs around for parts of Saturday yielding some clouds with unseasonably warm temperatures.

A piece of energy from the incoming Pacific storm breaks away from the parent circulation mid-weekend and affects our area with clouds overspreading the area on Sunday and precipitation starting as soon as Sunday afternoon and lasting through Monday noon.
