Short Range Forecast Discussion
This forecast is brought to you courtesy of Aspen-Snowmass Resort
Short Range Forecast Discussion - Updated for Monday, April 20, 2015 Colorado is sitting on the east side of a west coast upper-level high pressure ridge today and through Wednesday, with more sun, a warming trend, and just afternoon thunderstorms by Tuesday and Wednesday, with a lot more sunshine. Heavier spring snow is coming late week as low pressure moves in out of the northwest US (more detail coming). The first shot of accumulating snow for lower resort elevations may be moving in later Thursday, continuing through Friday, then another low pressure system moves in Saturday and Sunday (25/ 26th), with more significant late season snow possible, including in the town of Aspen.

Long Range Forecast Discussion:

7 day to 2 week+ forecast (since 1998) - 24 April to 02 May, 2015 - Pacific Northwest/ Northern California/ UTAH/ COLORADO/ northern New Mexico: April continues much more busy (frequent snow) with more storms across the western US than we saw in March, including for the Pacific Northwest and northern Rocky Mountains. For Utah-Colorado-northern New Mexico, we expect a chance for snow Thursday and Friday (23-24th) and again Saturday and Sunday (25th-26th) as cold low pressure moves in out of the northwest US, delivering potentially heavy snow. After this, high pressure builds in (less wind, milder, mostly sunny) for 2-3 days, then possibly stronger low pressure and significant snow for the last days of April/ 1st of May. In May we see more stable conditions and more dominant high pressure ridging aloft, with warming and mostly sunny skies and the usual afternoon thunderstorm activity. Tahoe-Mammoth, the northern/ central Sierra Nevada Mountains and the Cascades of WA/ OR have a shot at snow between next weekend and that Monday (24th-27th), with significant snow possible, though the storm targets the northwest US/ northern Rocky Mountains.
