Short Range Forecast Discussion - Updated for Sunday, July 05, 2015
We expect thunderstorms and showers today for Aspen (and we do have higher dew point temperatures/ clouds/ atmospheric instability), as low pressure moving across southern Canada helps to channel a moisture plume across Colorado, and sends a cold front down south (Monday) along the front range mountains, and this will help focus extra energy and moisture across Colorado including Aspen, for resultant good coverage of thunderstorms and showers again, with some good soaking showers possible. Temperatures also drop off due to this. Tuesday and through the coming week we expect an unusual low pressure system west of California, then moving in across California and eventually Colorado by late week, with a drying trend expected for Aspen and the rest of Colorado under a developing drier more west flow of winds overhead.

7 day to 2 week+ forecast (since 1998) - We plan to bring this back in the fall, unless we receive interest in firing the longer range forecast back up, sooner.
It looks like a strong El Nino will be in effect this fall and winter, and is already present now. This would usually cause heavier rain and snow across California and the southwest US (winter). We will be monitoring the progress of this right here, stay tuned... CM
