Short Range Forecast Discussion

Short Range Forecast Discussion - Updated for Friday, February 27, 2015 What can we say? Snow, more snow, and even more snow is expected all the way into next week! Low pressure drops in out west, and a southwest flow aloft develops, with a 120-140mph jet stream expected overhead, oriented again out of the southwest, combined with plenty of moisture, slamming the San Juan Mountains with some of the heaviest snow of the season. Snowfall favors southwest Colorado, multiple feet, but Sunday morning through Tuesday we are looking for snow days at Aspen as well, with some heavy daily snow totals expected. Lighter snow is expected across the north, Vail Pass and east/ north, until Monday and especially Tuesday when northern origin low pressure pushes the low out west eastward, for cold air advection and a more favorable west and northwest wind flow across the mountains. Heavier snow hits Vail Pass and eastward at this time (Monday-Tuesday). On a much colder and windy Wednesday, we see low pressure exit eastward with some lingering and light snow, then sunshine.
