Short Range Forecast Discussion
This free forecast is brought to you courtesy of Aspen-Snowmass Resort
Short Range Forecast Discussion - Updated for Sunday, March 01, 2015 Low pressure out west, which has driven the snowfall we have been seeing in the last 2 days, is dropping a bit further south than expected, and causing the southwest flow aloft to become more southerly, allowing milder air to move in and overall less favorable dynamics across the area. Mostly light to moderate snowfall is expected to fall across Aspen and northern areas Vail and eastward, as snow potential increases this afternoon through tonight (thanks to a slug of moisture pulled from offshore of California). By Monday and especially Tuesday we see northern origin low pressure pushing the low out west eastward (we are watching this and may be making more forecast updates later today), for cold air advection and a more favorable west and northwest wind flow across the mountains. Heavier snow hits Vail Pass and eastward at this time (Monday-Tuesday). On a much colder and windy Wednesday, we see low pressure exit eastward with some lingering and light snow, then sunshine.

The storm moves through Monday (2nd) through Thursday (5th). Following this, frequent storms continue moving in across the entire western US, with eastern Pacific (storm blocking) upper-level high pressure ridging not going away completely. Frequent and at times significant snowfalls continue across the western US.
