Short Range Forecast Discussion - Updated for Tuesday, July 07, 2015
We expect a lot of thunderstorm and shower activity today and Wednesday for Aspen, with higher than usual dew point temperatures/ clouds/ atmospheric instability, as a moisture plume continues across Colorado, with some good soaking showers possible. Temperatures also drop off due to this. The rest of this week we expect an unusual low pressure system west of California, then moving in across California and eventually Colorado by late week, with a drying trend expected for Aspen and the rest of Colorado under a developing drier more west flow of winds overhead.

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.
It looks like a strong El Nino will be in effect this fall and winter, and is already present now. This would usually cause heavier rain and snow across California and the southwest US (winter). We will be monitoring the progress of this right here, stay tuned... CM
