Short Range Forecast Discussion - Updated for Friday (at 5:43am), April 29, 2016
Today We expect heavy snow for the east slopes of the Front Range, and some heavy snow also expected across 8,500' elevations of northern Colorado as well (including the mountains around Aspen), plus lighter snow in the town of Aspen and other areas below 9,000 feet as low pressure moves overhead/ across Colorado through today, with increased instability and moisture.
Saturday and Sunday we expect the influence of low pressure to persist, with 1 low pressure system exiting on Saturday, leaving somewhat unsettled conditions and lingering moisture, for more showers and even isolated afternoon thunderstorms. Unsettled conditions and additional snow for the higher elevations are expected, and as another weakening low pressure system moves in on Sunday, the showery pattern continues. Cooler than usual weather is expected for Aspen, and some more snow showers at times, mostly not accumulating. Some isolated thunderstorms will also mix in due to daytime heating and instability again on Sunday. CM.

Long Range Forecast Discussion:

Spring into Summer - The El Nino SST pattern is weakening, and expected to transition to a La Nina as we move into early summer. What we are expecting for ski resort regions is this;

Northwest US/ Southwest Canada/ WA/ OR/ ID/ MT/ WY, and AB/ BC - Milder than average temperatures with average amounts of valley rain and mountain snow for March/ April (in other words, good enough to build snow pack and keep resorts happy), then wetter and cooler than usual for May/ June (even some additional snow pack in the mountains mainly above 5,000 feet), dry in July/ August except for the occasional thunderstorm...

Southwest US/ SoCal to Mammoth/ Arizona/ New Mexico/ southern Utah/ southwest Colorado - Cooler than average temperatures with above average amounts of valley rain and mountain snow for March/ April (in other words, more than usual additional snow pack), and continued wetter/ cooler than usual for May/ June (additional snow pack for the Sierra Nevada Mountains mainly above 7,000 feet), then dry in July/ August except for the occasional thunderstorm (north), but a possibly stronger than usual monsoon pattern (more thunderstorms/ rain) for eastern CA deserts/ mountains (incl. Big Bear) through New Mexico...

Colorado/ northern New Mexico - Near average amounts of valley rain and mountain snow with slightly above average temperatures for March but mainly April, then near average precip + near average temperatures for May/ June. Cooler and wetter than usual conditions are expected (north) in July/ August with greater amounts of monsoon pattern rains/ storms, near average temps and precip (south)...CM
