TODAY through WEDNESDAY - Today we clear out after some early morning very light snow, with chilly temperatures and mostly sunny conditions. On Saturday another system clips the area, but just with some clouds and maybe some isolated snow showers. By Sunday and Monday a strong ridge of high pressure builds in to the west, shoving the storm track further east, as a large scale low pressure trough develops over the eastern US. This sunny and milder weather should hold through the 13th or so, followed by frequent Pacific snow storms mid Feb into late February (at least a week of unsettled/ snowy weather starting after the 13th).

7 day to 2 week+ forecast (since 1998) -
(Updated 31Jan2016) - Expect high pressure ridging and clearing/ milder weather to hold, and then after the 13th we see more storms hitting the western US, favoring California at first.

Winter into Spring - The El Nino SST pattern is strong, right now, and it looks like we will see a VERY strong El Nino continue for the rest of this winter. This set-up would usually cause heavier rain and snow across California (mainly southern and central, including Tahoe (Tahoe is already seeing a better season than they have had in years) mainly after mid-January, including southern California ski resorts, 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, which would make for a good year. We will be monitoring the progress of this right here, stay tuned... CM
