Short Range Forecast Discussion - Updated for Sunday, August 02, 2015
Thunderstorms and showers increase for Aspen and northwest Colorado today and into Monday as an upper level weather disturbance moves across the area from the south, and draws increased moisture across the area, for thunderstorms and showers, some heavy, through tonight and into Monday morning mainly, decreasing (along with clouds) during the day Monday as the upper-level weather disturbance exits the area. This coming Tuesday through Thursday the air dries out, and thunderstorm chances decrease, with high temperatures into the warm 80's, and nights dipping into the 40's, under mostly sunny skies. We expect another thunderstorm and shower increase Friday and especially on Saturday as a weakened low pressure system moves into the Pacific Northwest and draws increased moisture into the area (Friday), then moves across the area Saturday into Sunday. Some good soaking showers are again possible on Saturday, into Sunday. CM

Long Range Forecast Discussion:

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.

The El Nino SST pattern is strong, right now, and it looks like we will see a VERY strong El Nino this fall and winter, possibly stronger than the 1997-1998 version, which is the strongest (in terms of SST anomaly) on record. This set-up would usually cause heavier rain and snow across California (mainly southern and central, possibly including Tahoe, but especially including Mountain High and Big Bear, as the epic 1997-1998 season can attest to) and the southwest US this winter. This would be a vast improvement for Tahoe-Mammoth. Southwest Colorado and northern New Mexico usually do well, including Taos Ski Valley, who had a great season in 2014-2015 with the weak El Nino(ish) anomaly. Aspen is in between, and we would say average snowfall should be expected at Aspen-Snowmass in 2015-2016. We will be posting a detailed outlook for Aspen-Snowmass, Squaw Valley/ Tahoe, Mountain High, and Taos Ski Valley in the coming months. We will be monitoring the progress of this right here, stay tuned... CM
