Snow likely to come in waves, Storm track expected to continue for another week

The winter storm track that has gripped Steamboat Springs since Saturday promises to keep coming in waves. "If you don't have enough, there's more," National Weather Service meteorologist Paul Frisbee said Tuesday afternoon. "The storm due Friday and Saturday will be quite significant for all of Western Colorado." Even as he spoke of a weekend storm, Frisbee was predicting the Steamboat Ski Area would see double-digit snowfall overnight and into today.

"Steamboat will have another good day," Frisbee predicted. "We're expecting 9 to 18 inches of snow through tomorrow. It could be close to 2 feet. In town, you might see 5 to 11 (inches). The heaviest snow will fall before sunup," and begin to taper off into mid-morning.

Frisbee said the front's west-to-northwest flow was ideal for producing "terrain enhanced snow" in the Park Range, which includes Mount Werner and the slopes of Steamboat Ski Area. Snow moisture data gathered by the Natural Resource Conservation Ser-vice indicates that on a percentage basis, Rabbit Ears Pass is receiving some of the heaviest precipitation in the state. The Columbine (east side of Rabbit Ears) and Rabbit Ears snowpack measuring sites are at 113 and 107 percent of average, respectively.

After conditions dry out Sunday afternoon through Monday, he anticipated another system in the region Dec. 6.
