Heads up, there may be fresher snow! Read the latest Steamboat Daily Snow

Showery through Saturday, sunnier on Sunday

Summary

Following Tuesday's powder, we'll see clouds and showers from Wednesday through Saturday, with sunny and warm weather likely on Sunday.

Update

Tuesday

Tuesday was a late-season powder day with 11 inches of total snowfall. The sky stayed cloudy for most of the day, keeping temperatures cool with a high in the 30s.

Wednesday, Thursday, Friday

On Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, we'll see mostly cloudy skies, occasional showers, and a high temperature in the upper 30s to low 40s.

Any showers that do hit the mountain will likely fall as rain at the base and snow higher up on the hill.

Friday Night & Saturday

On Friday night, the final wave of showers should move across Colorado, and we could see anything from just a few more snowflakes, all the way to 1-3+ inches of accumulation. So on Saturday, there might be a little bit of new snow in the morning, and the high temperature will again be around 40 degrees.

Sunday Closing Day

For Sunday's closing day, I think that skies will transition to be mostly sunny and the high temperature should be in the mid-40s – a perfect way to end the season!

My next update will be Thursday morning.

Thanks for reading!
