SafetyWise and Joe Nicholls' Forecast for Friday, August 29, 2104

Good morning! It should be a nice on the mountain today! I'm still a little concerned that the air mass is a little unstable and just enough moisture for an isolated thunderstorm this afternoon or evening. A cold front will move across the area later Saturday and Sunday, and again, there's just enough moisture and instability for a chance of a couple of showers and thunderstorms. There's is a period of nice weather showing up from later Sunday through the middle of next…

SafetyWise and Joe Nicholls' Forecast for Thursday, August 28, 2014

Ladies & Gents,   We have gone 57 days since our last day lost to a work related injury.

The low pressure is shifting into the Plains, but there's still a fairly moist air mass circulating back into the area, and we'll see some showers today, but the amounts should be on the light side. The air mass is still shown to be a little unstable tomorrow on the models, and while I can't see any mechanism, other than heating, the models generate a couple of showers or thunderstorms. These…

Go Breakfast

GO breakfast!

 

Breakfast is truly the most important meal of the day.     Did you know that a healthy GO breakfast:

  • Gives you the energy needed to start the day and helps you to keep your energy throughout the day. When you wake up, your brain and body are ready to be recharged with a fresh supply of glucose – or blood sugar – the brain’s basic fuel.
  • Helps with Weight Control. After fasting during the night your metabolism has slowed. If…

 Is Crested Butte up for Bud Light's "Whatever" campaign? It just might be, but some worry

Nancy Lofholm - The Denver Post

Are you up for Whatever?   That's a loaded question in Crested Butte right now.  

This mountain town that is known for wacky, out-of-the-box, costumed events is in a dither over secretive plans to have a beer company take over the town and literally paint it blue for an upcoming weekend as part of an online and television ad…

SafetyWise and Joe Nicholls' Forecast for Wednesday, August 28, 2014

Ladies & Gents,

We have gone 56 days since our last day lost to a work related injury.

Another solid rain event in the last 24 hours, and the low pressure is moving slowly eastward across Utah. We should see a little break, as the main band of moisture shifts north of us, but should fill back in this afternoon and tonight. The air mass isn't super unstable, but the combination of the moisture and lift from the low pressure should generate more showers…

El Nino is not a big thing for Steamboat this winter

Tom Ross - The Steamboat Today

The upcoming winter of 2014-15 represents an El Nino season, but based on the latest forecast, and recent history, skiing and snowboarding enthusiasts needn’t adjust their vacation plans.

Scientists at the National Weather Service and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration reported Aug. 7 that El Nino, the storm shifter caused by warming temperatures in the…

SafetyWise and Joe Nicholls Forecast for Tuesday, August 26, 2014

Ladies & Gents,

We have gone 55 days since our last day lost to a work related injury.

The air mass remains fairly moist and unstable this morning, and the low pressure is over Nevada and will be shifting slowly eastward today and tomorrow. As I was going through the temperature forecasts, this seems more like fall temperatures than summer! So, more showers and thunderstorms today and tomorrow, then isolated on Thursday, but certainly a drying trend…

SafetyWise and Joe Nicholls Forecast for Monday, August 25, 2014

Ladies & Gents,

We have gone 54 days since our last day lost to a work related injury.

A number of showers and a couple of thunderstorms overnight and this morning. The radar is showing some rain over the area at 7 AM, and still some showers back to the southwest of Craig. I expect these showers continue continue through 9 or 10 AM, then a little break through the easrly to mid afternoon hours. An area of low pressure developing over the Great Basin will continue to keep…

Safety Wise and Joe Nicholls' Forecast for Friday, August 22, 2014

Ladies & Gents,

We have gone 51 days since our last day lost to a work related injury.

A couple of different features to impact us over the next 2 days with the first located near the "Four Corners" and you can already see the moisture spreading into western and central Colorado. The heaviest precipitation will be south and east of us later today and this evening, but this moistens up the air mass. The second feature is a deepening low pressure into the Pacific Northwest,…

SafetyWise and Joe Nicholls Forecast for Thursday, August 21, 2014

Ladies & Gents,

We have gone 51 days since our last day lost to a work related injury.

A fairly active period for August with a couple of upper level low pressures, and even a couple of surface cold fronts to impact the area through Tuesday. I think today will be your typical afternoon and early evening convection with scattered coverage. An upper level system will move up across southwest and into central Colorado tomorrow afternoon and evening. This will be something to…

The influx of mountain bikers heading here this week is coming from nearby — the International Mountain Bike Association, which is putting on its world summit starting Wednesday in Steamboat Springs, is headquartered in Boulder, of course.
