Short Range Forecast Discussion

Light snow moves in today/ Becoming mostly sunny Thursday through Friday/ Some clouds and isolated showers Saturday into Sunday

(Check out our US snow pack - snow depth - snow temperature - new snow - etc. maps!)

Forecast updated for Wednesday, April 16, 2014

Weak (for Colorado) low pressure moves through today, mainly to the north, with light snow due to limited moisture and dynamics present. Snow should clear out tonight/ Thursday morning as high pressure ridges in again. We remain under a mostly high pressure ridging aloft regime Friday (mostly sunny), but Saturday and Sunday a weak low pressure disturbance moves in (another west coast cut-off low) with some clouds and mostly isolated showers across the area (high snow levels).

Long Range Forecast Discussion:

7 day to 2 week+ forecast (since 1998) - 20 to 30 April, 2014 - High pressure ridging aloft and mostly sunny skies are possible next Monday and Tuesday, then another low pressure system moves in next Wednesday through Friday (4 days or so between storms) with more potential snowfall, and potentially significant for any area as it may track south also. We may see this followed by high pressure ridging aloft next Saturday and for a few+ days (26th on). Winter is not over yet for the Colorado high country, but it seems to be tapering off, in general.

Longer Range Outlook

As of now, April 2014, we are continuing to be affected by an ENSO-Neutral, or La Nada Sea Surface Temperature pattern across the Equatorial Eastern Pacific (SSTs near to slightly below average).

Current SST pattern- La Nada

The larger time-scale SST pattern in place right now is a cool phase PDO, or negative PDO, which stands for Pacific Decadal Oscillation. This is a more long term pattern (decades), and it has made any recent years El Nino SST patterns weaker.

We expect the ENSO Neutral, or La Nada pattern (almost a La Nina) to continue, and in the last 30 days we have seen more of a La Nina pattern develop with colder SST's along the eastern Equatorial Pacific and even the region 3.4 always referred to, though less so in 3.4. We are not seeing the trend toward El Nino yet.

Since we are seeing an actual cooling of the eastern Equatorial Pacific in the last month, and not much change in the 3.4 region, we expect this to not bode well for a shift out of a La Nada pattern, yet. If we start to see warming in the region mentioned, then we expect a potential strengthening jet stream across the Pacific, and increased moisture in general for Pacific storms as they move in more directly off the Pacific. We will keep this outlook updated as more information becomes available.
