Short Range Forecast Discussion

->This free forecast is brought to you courtesy of Aspen-Snowmass Resort<-
Short Range Forecast Discussion - Updated for Tuesday, January 27, 2015: Today and Wednesday a high pressure ridge overhead becomes weakened, and this allows a milder weather disturbance from the Pacific to move in with snow showers across the area late today and Wednesday, mostly light, best across southwest Colorado, lighter for Aspen-Snowmass and northern Colorado. Thursday and Friday we expect low pressure to deepen and strengthen across the southwest US, with an increased and unsettled flow of moisture into Colorado, for more snow, favoring southwest Colorado again. Light snow is expected for Aspen-Snowmass and the rest of northern/ central western Colorado on Thursday, however, it is looking like Friday through Saturday this low in place, and another moving in from out of the north, come together for a potentially significant snow event for Aspen and the north (more in the next update). Sunday is looking like it will clear out to mostly sunny under high pressure ridging overhead. If you like sun and fresh snow, show up on Sunday. please see the detail in the long range forecast below.

7 day to 2 week+ forecast (since 1998) - 02 to 12 February, 2015 - UTAH/ COLORADO/ NEW MEXICO: High pressure ridging builds in over the southwest US early February (Monday and Tuesday, 2nd/ 3rd), with chilly temperatures and mostly sunny skies after a nice snowfall for most areas. By later Tuesday and through Wednesday, Thursday morning (3rd-5th), another storms moves in, this one out of the northwest, with colder air and snow blasting in for northern Utah, Colorado, and northern New Mexico. Moderate snow for Utah, moderate to heavy for Colorado (favoring northern areas including Aspen), and light to moderate for northern New Mexico including Taos Ski Valley. The snow hangs on longer for Taos as the storm exits to the south. Following this storm, we see strong high pressure ridging all across the western US, with sunny and milder conditions through the 8th (California) - 10th (Colorado). Pacific storms move in after this, and we are expecting February to be more active across the west, more specifically the southwest US, but including Colorado and northern New Mexico, for more frequent and possibly significant snowfalls. NORTHWEST US and SOUTHWEST CANADA: High pressure ridging builds in over the southwest US early February (Monday and Tuesday, 2nd/ 3rd), and a fairly strong storm blasts into the area up and over this ridge, with heavy snowfall possible across the inland Northwest ski areas. This storm should be cold enough to drop some good amounts of lighter powder across the inland Northwest US including north Idaho and northwest Montana, and also including the Washington Cascades and southwest Canada, minus the annoying rains we have been seeing in the last several weeks. Following this storm, we see strong high pressure ridging all across the western US, with sunny and milder conditions through the 8th/ 9th for the northwest US and southwest Canada. Pacific storms move in after this, and we are expecting February to be more active across the west, more specifically the southwest US, but including the northwest US/ southwest Canada as well, for more frequent and possibly significant snowfalls. TAHOE/ MAMMOTH/ NORTHERN SIERRA; High pressure ridging builds in over the southwest US early February (Monday and Tuesday, 2nd/ 3rd), and the south end of a strong Pac NW storm moves through the area up and over this ridge, with light snowfall possible for Tahoe ski areas including Squaw and Alpine Meadows. This storm may have some snow level issues, with snow levels near 7,000 feet possible. Following this storm, we see strong high pressure ridging all across the western US, with sunny and milder conditions through the 8th or so. Pacific storms move in after this, and we are expecting February (as has seemed to be the case a lot in the last few years) to be more active across the west, more specifically the southwest US, but including Tahoe-Mammoth as well, for more frequent and significant snowfalls. SOUTHWEST US AND SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA; High pressure ridging builds in over the southwest US early February (Monday and Tuesday, 2nd/ 3rd), with mostly sunny skies but some Santa Ana wind possible (helps with snow making). Following this period, we see strong high pressure ridging all across the western US, with sunny and milder conditions through the 8th-9th or so. Pacific storms move in after this, and we are expecting February (as has seemed to be the case a lot in the last few years) to be more active across the west, more specifically the southwest US, including Mountain High and SoCal resort areas. WYOMING/ SOUTHWEST MONTANA: High pressure ridging builds in over the southwest US early February (Monday and Tuesday, 2nd/ 3rd), and a fairly strong storm blasts into the area up and over this ridge for Tuesday/ Wednesday, with moderate to heavy snowfall possible across southwest Montana and Wyoming ski areas. This storm should be cold enough to drop some significant amounts of light powder across the area. Following this storm, we see strong high pressure ridging all across the western US, with sunny and milder conditions through the 9th/ 10th. Pacific storms move in after this, and we are expecting February to be pretty active across the west, more specifically the southwest US, including southwest Montana/ Wyoming resort areas.
