Joe Nicholls and NOAA Forecast for Tuesday, July 11, 2017

Joe Nicholls

Shaping up to be another fairly active weather day with the lifted index of -3 by late morning or early afternoon, and a weak upper level system over Utah that is expected to move across us today. A little more stable tomorrow with the passage of this system, but I don't think we totally get rid of the chance of an afternoon or evening thunderstorm through the weekend. I do see the air mass warming up again. Welcome to summer!

Joe is calling for a moderate chance of thunderstorms from Noon to Midnight, with a low chance from then until 3 am.

NOAA - Steamboat Springs

Today - Scattered showers and thunderstorms, mainly after 1 pm. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 81. Calm wind becoming west around 5 mph in the afternoon. Chance of precipitation is 30%.

Wednesday Night - A slight chance of showers and thunderstorms before 11 pm, then a slight chance of showers between 11 pm and midnight. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 48. East northeast wind around 5 mph becoming calm in the evening. Chance of precipitation is 20%.

On this date in 1969, 'Space Oddity' by David Bowie was released in the UK for the first time. It was timed to coincide with the Apollo moon landing but had to be re-released before it became a hit, later in the year in the UK (but not until 1973 in the US). Bowie would later revisit his Major Tom character in the songs 'Ashes to Ashes', 'Hallo Spaceboy' and possibly the music video for 'Blackstar'.
