The Steamboat Daily Snow Forecast for Wednesday, January 3, 2018

Joel Gratz

On Wednesday morning, you’ll find lots of sunshine, a base temperature of about -5F, and much warmer readings on the mountain where the temperature is about 20F. By midday, temperatures from base-to-summit should warm nicely into the mid-20s to low-30s. These conditions will be repeated on Thursday and Friday, with perhaps a few more clouds filtering the sunshine on those days.

On Saturday, expect an increase in clouds during the afternoon, with snow beginning in the afternoon and continuing through Saturday night. The most intense snow should fall on Saturday night through Sunday morning with 3-6 inches of accumulation. Plan to ski on Sunday to enjoy the fresh powder, and with a favorable wind from the west and northwest on Sunday, we might see snow showers continue, which would keep conditions soft and also might mean more powder for Monday morning.

Following the fresh snow on Sunday-day and Monday morning, we’ll likely see a few dry days early next week, then the next storm should bring snow from later Wednesday through Friday (January 10-12), which means that there could be more fresh powder on Thursday and again on Friday morning.

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

On this date in 1969, while appearing live on "The Lulu Show" on UK TV, The Jimi Hendrix Experience were booked to perform two songs, Voodoo Child, (which was performed in full), and their new song, "Hey Joe." Hendrix stopped performing his 'Hey Joe' after a verse and chorus and instead launched into a version of the Cream song 'Sunshine Of Your Love' as a tribute to the band who had split a few days earlier. Hendrix then proceeded to continuing jamming, running over their allocated time slot on the live show, preventing the show's host Lulu from closing the show properly.
