TODAY through WEDNESDAY - Strong high pressure ridging aloft holds across the western US today and Saturday, with relatively warm weather and dry air under mostly sunny skies. Later Saturday we expect high pressure ridging to break down, and the next chance for snow moves in on Sunday, mainly in the afternoon and through overnight, lingering into Monday. Northern Colorado and specifically northwest slopes closest to the divide will do best, and Aspen-Snowmass should see light snow. A couple/ few days break is expected afterward, then another storm, this one potentially stronger and more promising, moves in next Thursday and Friday. More moderate snow totals are possible with this one. CM

7 day to 2 week+ forecast (since 1998) -
(Updated 08Feb2016) - Details are coming, but for now see the short range discussion for longer range info.

Winter into Spring - The El Nino SST pattern is strong, right now, and it looks like we will see a VERY strong El Nino continue for the rest of this winter. This set-up would usually cause heavier rain and snow across California (mainly southern and central, including Tahoe (Tahoe is already seeing a better season than they have had in years) mainly after mid-January, including southern California ski resorts, as the epic 1997-1998 season can attest to) and the southwest US this winter. This would be a vast improvement for Tahoe-Mammoth. Southwest Colorado and northern New Mexico usually do well, including Taos Ski Valley, who had a great season in 2014-2015 with the weak El Nino(ish) anomaly. Aspen is in between, and we would say average snowfall should be expected at Aspen-Snowmass in 2015-2016, which would make for a good year. We will be monitoring the progress of this right here, stay tuned... CM
