The Steamboat Daily Snow Forecast for Friday, January 5, 2018

Joel Gratz

Friday is starting out as another morning with a temperature inversion (temperatures increase with elevation). Readings are about 10F at the base and about 30F at the top of the Gondola! The afternoon high will be in the mid-30s with increasing mid-and-high level clouds filtering the sunshine.

On Saturday, expect clouds to increase during the day, with light snow beginning during the late afternoon or early evening. On Saturday night, snow will likely intensify, and I think you’ll wake up on Sunday morning to 3-6 inches of fresh powder with light snow continuing to fall through mid-morning on Sunday. Plan to ski on Sunday morning to take advantage of the new flakes!

From Sunday evening through Tuesday morning I think we’ll see dry weather, then the next storm will bring snow sometime between late Tuesday through Friday, January 12th. It’s possible that light-to-moderate snow will fall off-and-on during this time, which should make snow conditions softer and deeper as we get to Thursday and into Friday.

Following that storm, expect dry weather for about five days, with a stormier period possibly beginning around Thursday, January 18th.

Thanks for reading and stay tuned for an update each morning!
