Grab shades, sunscreen for summer weather this week in Steamboat

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS — It is going to feel like summer this week in the Steamboat Springs area.

“The weather over the Steamboat Springs area is forecast to be dry and summery for the coming work week,” wrote local meteorologist Mike Weissbluth, who runs

The National Weather Service in Grand Junction is forecasting a high temperature of 77 degrees Monday, followed by highs in the lower 80s for the remainder of the week.

Weissbluth said a storm that impacted some parts of Colorado on Sunday was expected to move east.

On Monday, some winds should be expected as a a storm grazes the northern part of Colorado.

“There may be some slight cooling early Tuesday, with a small chance of a shower along the higher terrain later that afternoon,” Weissbluth said. “Otherwise, the weather looks meteorologically uninteresting, but sensibly spectacular through most of the upcoming week, with clear, cool nights and warm to hot sunny days.”

Weissbluth said there was some uncertainty for the weather this weekend, as another storm approaches the West Coast.

“Specifically, (we’re not certain) whether it will remain strong enough as it passes north of our area to re-introduce the chance of late-day showers around mid-weekend,” Weissbluth said. “At this time, it looks like they will be light and inconsequential, at best.”
