Steamboat Daily Snow

February 26, 2020 6:47am MST

Update

Tuesday was a wonderful winter day with fresh powder in the morning, light snow showers during the day, and temperatures topping out around 10°F. We managed to measure about 1 inch of new snow during the day plus an additional 1 inch of snow on Tuesday evening.

Wednesday morning will start cold with temperatures below zero near the base and close to 0°F at the summit. Thanks to beautifully sunny skies for most of the day, we’ll warm into the upper teens to low 20s by midday and afternoon.

From Wednesday evening through Thursday midday a weak storm will bring clouds and snow showers. We’ll likely see a coating to 3 inches of snow during this time. While it will not be big powder, Thursday morning might offer a few fresh flakes to enjoy. Temperatures on Thursday should start warmer, in the teens, and rise to the 20s during the afternoon with some peeks of sunshine.

Friday and Saturday will be mostly sunny, dry, and warmer with high temperatures in the upper 20s to low 30s. Enjoy the sunshine, which has been a rarity during February as we’ve seen snow on 16 of 26 days so far this month.

The next storm should bring snow starting on Sunday, March 1st and snow will likely continue through at least Wednesday, March 4th. There will be two storms moving through during these four days, and it’s still a bit far away to start talking about the details of these systems. At this point, we can be encouraged that snow should fall for multiple days with perhaps one or two solid powder days early next week.

Thanks for reading and check back each morning for daily updates!
