Steamboat gets a taste of an Indian summer

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, 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.

A storm Thursday night brought some snow to Colorado’s mountains with Snowmass receiving 8 inches.

The Arapahoe Basin and Loveland ski areas will be open this weekend.

Loveland received 4 inches of snow Thursday night and Arapahoe Basin saw 2 inches.

“Most models show storminess around Colorado into early November with a storm track either from the northwest and/or perhaps a storm stalling over the southwest,” wrote Joel Gratz, who runs “I have low confidence in the longer-range forecast, but there should be enough action around that we’ll have chances for snow every few days.”
