Short Range Forecast Discussion

->This free forecast is brought to you courtesy of Aspen-Snowmass Resort<-
Short Range Forecast Discussion - Updated for Monday, January 26, 2015: (More details are being added today) Through today we look mostly dry and warmer, as we sit under an exceptionally strong west coast high pressure ridge. Today looks spring-like, and granular snow conditions are likely. On Tuesday and Wednesday this ridge becomes weakened, and this allows a milder weather disturbance from the Pacific to move in with snow showers across the area Tuesday and Wednesday, mostly light to moderate, best across southwest Colorado, lighter for Aspen-Snowmass. 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. This coming weekend looks mostly sunny under high pressure ridging overhead. please see the detail in the long range forecast below.

7 day to 2 week+ forecast (since 1998) - 28 January to 07 February, 2014 - COLORADO/ NEW MEXICO: We expect storm-blocking higher pressure ridging to continue across the west coast for the rest of January, with milder than average temperatures and mostly sunny skies in between mostly short bursts of snow (fast moving or weak storms like the one we expect Tuesday/ Wednesday). It looks like the incessant upper-level high pressure ridge will weaken and start yielding to some Pacific storms as we move into February, the first few days should be the transition. Due to this, 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 Colorado and northern New Mexico, for more frequent and possibly significant snowfalls. NORTHWEST US and SOUTHWEST CANADA: We expect storm-blocking higher pressure ridging to continue across the west coast for the rest of January, with milder than average temperatures overall, and occasional snowfall with base area snow level issues for most storms (aka rain). It looks like the incessant upper-level high pressure ridge will weaken and start yielding to some Pacific storms as we move into February, the first few days should be the transition. Due to this, 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 also including southwest Canada and the northwest US (Cascades and northern Rocky Mountains), for colder temperatures, more powder (and less/ no base elevation rain), and significant snowfalls. TAHOE/ MAMMOTH/ NORTHERN SIERRA; We expect storm-blocking higher pressure ridging to continue across the west coast for the rest of January, with milder than average temperatures and mostly sunny skies in between mostly short bursts of snow (fast moving or weak storms like the relatively mild one with low/ resort base elevation snow level issues that we expect Monday/ Tuesday). It looks like the incessant upper-level high pressure ridge will weaken and start yielding to some Pacific storms as we move into February, the first few days should be the transition. Due to this, 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, for frequent and significant snowfalls. SOUTHWEST US AND SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA; We expect storm-blocking higher pressure ridging to continue across the west coast for the rest of January, with milder than average temperatures and mostly sunny skies in between mostly short bursts of snow (fast moving or weak storms like the relatively mild one with resort elevation snow level issues -rain- that we expect Monday/ Tuesday). It looks like the incessant upper-level high pressure ridge will weaken and start yielding to some Pacific storms as we move into February, the first few days should be the transition. Due to this, 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 other SoCal resorts, for occasional to frequent and at times significant snowfalls. UTAH: We expect storm-blocking higher pressure ridging to continue across the west coast for the rest of January, with milder than average temperatures and mostly sunny skies in between mostly short bursts of snow (fast moving or weak storms like the one we expect Tuesday/ Wednesday). It looks like the incessant upper-level high pressure ridge will weaken and start yielding to some Pacific storms as we move into February, the first few days should be the transition. Due to this, 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 Utah and even northern Utah, for more frequent and possibly significant snowfalls. WYOMING/ MONTANA: We expect storm-blocking higher pressure ridging to continue across the west coast for the rest of January, with milder than average temperatures and mostly sunny skies in between mostly short bursts of snow (fast moving or weak storms like the one we expect Tuesday/ Wednesday). It looks like the incessant upper-level high pressure ridge will weaken and start y
