STEAMBOAT SPRINGS — After a dash of snow on Sunday evening, weather in the Steamboat Springs area is expected to be clear and sunny for most of the workweek. The National Weather Service in Grand Junction called for the clouds to roll out on Monday, with the day starting partly sunny, then gradually becoming sunny with a high near 45 degrees Fahrenheit. Tuesday and Wednesday are expected to be sunny and mostly sunny with highs in the mid to upper 50s. There is a slight chance of showers and thunderstorms Thursday afternoon. These precipitations will likely start falling as rain with temperatures near 50 degrees. Snow could return to the valley on Thursday night and Friday. “Though they may start as rain showers at the lower elevations, cold air associated with the storm will lower snow levels to the Yampa Valley floor overnight and into Friday,” local meteorologist Mike Weissbluth wrote in his bi-weekly forecast on snowalarm.com. “Though I expect changes in the forecasts, current guidance points toward 6-12 (inches) of snow at mid-mountain between Thursday night and Friday afternoon.”
