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

Snow on Friday night, then dry for the weekend

Summary

Clouds and a few snow showers will persist through Friday, with a higher chance for snow on Friday night. Then the weekend will trend drier and sunnier with a high temperature in the 40s.

Update

Wednesday

Wednesday was partly sunny and dry, then on Wednesday night, a few snow showers moved through and dropped a dusting of snow on most of the mountain with about 2 inches falling at the summit snow stake.

Thursday & Friday

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

Friday Night

On Friday night, a more intense band of showers should move across Colorado, and we could see anything from just a few more snowflakes, to maybe 1-2 inches of accumulation (more snow will likely fall just to the south of Steamboat).

Closing Weekend

Saturday and Sunday should be dry with high temperatures in the 40s. On Saturday, there is a higher chance for some clouds to stick around, and on Sunday, there is a higher chance for sunnier and warmer weather – a perfect way to end the season.

My next update will be Friday morning.

Thanks for reading!
