Joe Nicholls and CAIC Forecast for Friday, April 20, 2018

Joe NichollsDefinitely an increase in moisture over the area with numerous showers on the radar. There's a little lightning over northern New Mexico and some of eastern Utah. The data shows a marginally unstable air mass, so a slight chance of a thunderstorm today, but with the lack of heating, these look fairly isolated. The air mass cools off tonight with the snow level dropping to the base, and into early tomorrow morning. Another system will clip the area on Monday.Joe is calling for a Low…See More

The Steamboat Daily Snow Forecast for Tuesday, April 10, 2018

Joel GratzWe will trade powder days for dry days this week as Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday will be dry and warm with highs in the 40s near and above mid-mountain. High-and-mid-level clouds could filter the sunshine at times, which could slow the softening process of the snow, but with warm temperatures, the snow will eventually soften and you'll enjoy classic spring skiing. The only weather issues will be a few showers on Wednesday, and gusty winds on Thursday.Then our final storm of the…See More

The Steamboat Daily Snow Forecast for Monday, April 9, 2018

Joel GratzSunday was a fun powder day at the upper elevations of Steamboat with snow showers and breaks of sunshine throughout the day.Then on Sunday night, the final wave of colder snow moved through with 7 inches falling at the summit and about 5 inches on the official mid-mountain snow stake. We could see a few more hours of accumulating snowfall until about 9:00 am on Monday morning, so with a little luck, you'll find a bit more snow than the report indicates. Have fun on the fourth powder…See More

Joe Nicholls Forecast for Thursday, May 17, 2018Joe Nicholls Forecast for Thursday, May 17, 2018

Joe Nicholls

A weak low pressure is moving across Nevada and into Utah, then into our area today and tomorrow. We'll see an increase in showers and thunderstorms this afternoon, and especially on Saturday, so I've increased the chances and amounts. The steering current next week is really weak, so once the moisture moves into the area, it's difficult to dry the air mass, so I'll keep a low chance of a couple of afternoon and evening thunderstorms in the forecast.

There is a…
