The Steamboat Daily Snow Forecast, Thursday, November 23, 2017

The Steamboat Daily Snow - Joel Gratz

It's Thanksgiving Day and the mountain is now open. Enjoy your first turns of the season!

The current weather pattern is pushing most of the moisture and storms to the north of Colorado, however, some of this moisture is sneaking south, hanging over northern Colorado, and that is why there is a persistent layer of clouds over Steamboat. I do think we'll see more sunshine on Thursday compared to Wednesday, though, so keep that sunblock…

The Steamboat Daily Snow Forecast, Wednesday, November 22, 2017

The Steamboat Daily Snow - Joel Gratz

Steamboat received 3 inches of snow late Monday night through mid-morning on Tuesday, and this is just in time for Scholarship Day on Wednesday. I hope that you enjoy the first turns of the season!

The weather for the rest of this week and weekend will be partly sunny and dry as a large area of high pressure deflects most storms well to our north. Temperatures at night should be cold enough for some snowmaking, but we will likely not see…

The Steamboat Daily Snow Forecast, Friday, November 17, 2017

The Steamboat Daily Snow - Joel Gratz

Snow started late on Monday night and it's still snowing lightly now on Tuesday morning. My best estimate for snow totals is about 2-3 inches on the mid and upper mountain, and perhaps another coating to 2 inches could accumulate early on Tuesday morning. Every snowflake helps and it's great to see this accumulation even as the current weather pattern is not conducive to a lot of snow.

The mountain will open on Wednesday (see note above),…

The Steamboat Daily Snow Forecast, Friday, November 17, 2017

The Steamboat Daily Snow - Joel Gratz

Temperatures continue to drop nicely below freezing at night, so snow making is continuing. Hopefully, there will be enough cold weather to allow for enough snow making so that Steamboat can start spinning the lifts on Wednesday.

In terms of natural snow, we should see a weak storm on Monday night through Tuesday. This system has plenty of moisture but also is rather warm, with temperatures forecast to be the 20s and low 30s. The…

The Steamboat Daily Snow Forecast, Friday, November 17, 2017

The Steamboat Daily Snow Forecast - Joel Gratz

Snow will be in the air all day on Friday and through Friday evening.

The first part of the storm between Friday morning and Friday early afternoon will bring warm temperatures and a wind from the west-southwest, and neither is ideal for Steamboat. We will likely see some snow accumulate on the upper mountain, with raindrops possible on the lower mountain.

The second part of the storm will be much more beneficial. Around 2-3…

The Steamboat Daily Snow Forecast, Thursday, November 16, 2017

Winter Storm Warning in effect from November 16, 11:00 PM MST until November 18, 05:00 AM MST

The last few days have been warm and dry, but that will change as the next storm will begin on Thursday night.

From Thursday night through Friday midday, we'll see a few inches of snow on the mountain and perhaps some raindrops at the base. Then between about 1-3pm on Friday, a cold front will blast through Steamboat with rapidly falling temperatures and very intense snow. Snowfall…

Joe Nicholls and NOAA forecast for Tuesday, November 14, 2017

Joe Nicholls

The low pressure that moved into the Pacific Northwest yesterday, has lifted well northward into Canada. There's a lot of cloudiness over the region, but most of the support for precipitation will be north of us. The next system is already developing off the Pacific Northwest Coast, and it's looking like it'll tap into some moisture from the lower latitudes and move across us Thursday and Friday. I've shifted the timing of the precipitation a little, and could be aided by…

Joe Nicholls and NOAA forecast for Monday, November 13, 2017

Joe Nicholls

There's a low pressure moving into the Pacific Northwest with a cold front trailing southwestward to off the California Coast. This system will move inland tonight and clip us tomorrow afternoon, but other than some clouds, it should pass with little impact. A stronger front arrives late Thursday night, and Friday morning bringing a much colder air mass along with rain changing to snow, and a period of northwest winds. I may have to adjust the timing and shift some of the…

Joe Nicholls and NOAA forecast for Friday (!), November 10, 2017

Joe Nicholls

The system moving into the Pacific Northwest will continue eastward into the northern Rockies with little impact on us. There is a fair amount of cloudiness moving across the Great Basin and we should see some of these clouds through tomorrow morning, and even a chance of a snow shower. A cooler air mass tomorrow into Sunday morning. A similar system will track north of us on Tuesday, but then a stronger cold front is expected on Thursday with a good chance of snow along…

Joe Nicholls and NOAA forecast for Thursday, November 9, 2017

Joe Nicholls

The low pressure has moved into the Pacific Northwest and is weakening, and while we'll see some clouds at times, I'll play it dry. The air mass will cool a little over the weekend and this will allow for more snowmaking. Another weak system possible next Tuesday and similar to this system, it'll weaken as it move across the area.



NOAA - Mount Werner

Today - Sunny, with a high near 37. West southwest wind 5 to 10 mph.

Tonight - Mostly clear, with…

Joe Nicholls and NOAA forecast for Wednesday, November 8, 2017

Joe Nicholls

We cleared out, temperatures dropped and it's a beautiful sight seeing the snowmaking machine going!! The air mass will be moderating with a fairly strong inversion tomorrow morning, as the temperatures aloft warm. That system off the Pacific Northwest Coast will weaken considerably as it moves inland, and maybe a couple of flurries across the upper portion of the resort later Friday, then colder over the weekend with another snowmaking opportunity.

NOAA - Mount…

Joe Nicholls and NOAA forecast for Tuesday, November 7, 2017

Joe Nicholls

Nice to see some new snow, and I still think we could see some snow showers today. Clearing skies tonight will result in colder temperatures, and then late tonight and tomorrow, temperatures will be warming across the upper part of the resort resulting in temperature inversions Wednesday night and Thursday morning. The system clipping us on Friday is looking quite weak with just a chance of a couple of showers, but should be a little cooler behind it.

Joe Nicholls and NOAA forecast for Monday, November 6, 2017

Joe Nicholls

The radar shows some snow showers over the area now, but light and we'll see these scattered over the area today and tonight. The last of the low pressure will move across the area later tonight and tomorrow, and timing the best lift is a little difficult, as the wind fields are light, but enough support for some snow or snow showers later tonight and tomorrow. The system at the end of the week is weaker on the overnight models. 

NOAA - Mount Werner

There is…

Joe Nicholls and NOAA forecast for Friday, November 3, 2017

Joe Nicholls

The low pressure is deepening southward along the West Coast and will push inland tonight and tomorrow with an increasingly moist southwest flow of air into the area, especially by afternoon and continuing into early Sunday. The overnight models trended a little milder tomorrow and Sunday, but turning cooler Monday through Wednesday.

NOAA - Mount Werner

Today - Increasing clouds, with a high near 40. Breezy, with a west southwest wind 15 to 25 mph, with…

Joe Nicholls and NOAA forecast for Thurssday, November 2, 2017

Joe Nicholls

The low pressure is beginning to take shape off the Pacific Northwest Coast with an increasingly moist west to southwest flow this weekend through early next week. The models in the last 24 hours, are a tad cooler and have a little more moisture, and both trends are favorable for us, but we need it a little cooler. In the extended period, the PNA remains negative, and the tendency is to keep the low pressure just off the West Coast and this should keep our pattern on the…

Joe Nicholls and NOAA forecast for Wednesday, November 1, 2017

Joe Nicholls

A little more high cloudiness than we like to see moving across the area, but the pattern is beginning to develop and shift with the energy flowing southward across western Canada and low pressure will develop more off the West Coast. We'll see an increasingly moist southwest flow Saturday through Monday with occasional rain and snow showers. Initially, snow levels will be between 9000 and 9,500 feet, but lower below 8500 feet Sunday and Monday.

NOAA - Mount…

Joe Nicholls and NOAA forecast for Tuesday, October 31, 2017

Joe NIcholls

Awesome to see the new snow, but one of my concerns was that the temperatures wouldn't be allowed to drop because of the clouds and snow. A chance of a snow shower early this morning, then clearing tonight with some cooler temperatures. The next system will develop off the West Coast, and the main forecast issue is the timing of this system moving inland. I've had to push the timing back with most of the snowfall coming later Sunday into Monday.

NOAA - Mount…

Joe Nicholls and NOAA forecast for Monday, October 30, 2017

Joe Nicholls

A cold front will push southward across the area today, and combine with a system moving in from the west, and this will bring a chance of snow showers later tonight and early tomorrow. Still looking light to me with most of the precipitation down by I-70, but a cooler air mass , so not all bad! The next system develops offshore and it'll take until later Saturday night, if not Sunday, to move into the area bringing some snow and again some cooler temperatures. …

Joe Nicholls and NOAA forecast for Thursday, October 26, 2017

Joe Nicholls

A couple of fairly quiet weather days, but there's a couple of system on the horizon to keep an eye on. The first will be another front dropping southward across the Rockies and into the area later Monday and Tuesday, then another system on November 4th and 5th, but this is a more Pacific system.

NOAA - Steamboat Springs

Today - Mostly sunny, with a high near 45. South wind around 5 mph becoming west northwest in the afternoon.

Tonight - Partly cloudy,…

Joe Nicholls and NOAA forecast for Thursday, October 26, 2017

Joe Nicholls

The system is moving rapidly southeastward and we'll see some rain and snow showers today, but amounts are expected to be really light. The air mass does cool off quite a bit though! A second system is mainly just east of us on Saturday, then a third system, similar to this one. So, a couple of cooler shots of air with minimal moisture over the next week. I do see a system moving in from the west around the end of next week.

NOAA - Steamboat Springs
