Short Range Forecast Discussion
This forecast is brought to you courtesy of Aspen-Snowmass Resort
Short Range Forecast Discussion - Updated for Monday, March 30, 2015 Today and Tuesday 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 Wednesday moisture increases due to an approaching low pressure system, with some showers and afternoon showers/ thunderstorms and high snow levels. On Thursday and Friday we see a shot of light to moderate snow for Colorado including Aspen, then more significant snow is expected by later weekend (Sunday the 5th of April) and into next week, which is looking a bit wintry.

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. Following this, we may see some big Pacific storms, though frustratingly late, for heavy late season snow across many western US areas. More detail is coming.
