The Steamboat Daily Snow Forecast for Tuesday, March 6, 2018

Joel Gratz

Monday was a cloudy, windy, and cold day with temperatures topping out around 10F at the summit. We also saw a few snow showers which delivered one inch of new accumulation at mid-mountain.

Now on Tuesday morning, the temperature is still cold (0F at the summit), but the clouds are clearing, and the rest of Tuesday should be sunny all day with light winds and a temperature rising to the upper teens to low 20s.

The rest of the week, from Wednesday through Friday, will also be sunny with warmer temperatures reaching the 30s to low 40s. Wear sunscreen and enjoy bluebird spring skiing!

The next storm will be weak and should bring a chance for light snow (a dusting to a few inches) from Friday night through Saturday night. Then another storm will move close to or over Colorado from Sunday through Tuesday and this system could also bring a dusting to a few inches of snow. Both of these storms will be warmer, so you will NOT be skiing in frigid temperatures like we’ve seen for the last 36 hours.

Following those two weaker storms, we should have dry weather during the middle of next week, then all weather forecast models are indicating that a stormy pattern should set up over the western US starting around March 16th and that the stormy pattern should continue for at least 5-10 days. This means that significant powder days are possible during the second half of the month.

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