October 19, 2018
STEAMBOAT SPRINGS — It appears Steamboat Springs is finally getting a taste of an Indian summer.
The high temperatures over the weekend are expected to be around 60 degrees with temperatures near freezing overnight.
Sunny skies are in the forecast.
Steamboat Springs meteorologist Mike Weissbluth, who runs snowalarm.com, said a large storm developing in the Gulf of Alaska over the weekend could nudge some moisture our way Sunday or Monday.
"We should see increasing clouds by late in the weekend, with light showers possible from Monday through Wednesday," Weissbluth wrote. "While the system will be warm, the increased cloud cover may keep temperatures a bit below average."
Sunny skies and warmer weather is expected to return for the second half of next week.
