Short Range Forecast Discussion
This forecast is brought to you courtesy of Aspen-Snowmass Resort
Short Range Forecast Discussion - Updated for Friday, March 27, 2015 Today through Sunday are looking great for sunny and spring-like sessions under an upper-level high pressure ridge. On Monday we see slightly increased moisture acted upon by daytime heating (mostly sunny), for afternoon thunderstorms and showers developing across mainly southwest Colorado, but some isolated thunderstorms mainly on upper mountain areas for Aspen-Snowmass and northern Colorado. On Tuesday moisture increases due to a weak system to the south, and another weak system moving in from the northwest, coming together for some afternoon showers/ thunderstorms and high snow levels, then snow to 9,000 feet Tuesday night. Wednesday may clear out and become cooler with drier winds. CM please see the detail in the long range forecast below.

Long Range Forecast Discussion:

7 day to 2 week+ forecast (since 1998) - 02 to 12 April, 2015 - UTAH/ COLORADO: Next Thursday through Saturday or so we have a stronger storm possibly targeting mainly northern Utah and Colorado with more significant snow. WESTERN US: The absolute scourge of winter 2014-2015 for most of the west (Colorado has been one of the best places to go this winter however), the much hated and freakishly persistent upper-level high pressure ridge (mostly sunny/ dry at the resorts) does not want to give way to a large scale pattern change, even in early April, over to large scale low pressure (needed for the really big storms for the west US). Next Thursday through that weekend (2nd - 5th or so) a storm does move up and over this ridge, with snow (but some snow level issues) for the Inland Northwest, dropping into Wyoming/ Colorado. More detail is coming.
