Crested Butte Resort Discussion
Updated April 24, 2018

- A weak low pressure system is clipping Colorado with some clouds and showers today, some isolated afternoon thunderstorms, cooler temperatures, then this low exits on Wednesday (partly cloudy and warmer), with another system (more of a wave then a "low"), weaker and drier, clipping Colorado with some wind and clouds, slight cooling, otherwise high pressure ridging aloft is building in. This weekend we see high clouds increase, along with temperatures (we will see 70 degrees for a high in Aspen this weekend), as a southwest flow aloft develops out ahead of more low pressure and showers for the west coast.

LONGER RANGE: May looks unsettled to start (first 5+ days), a heat wave across the west follows, then more unsettled weather and cooling as we move into mid-late May.
US Extended Snowfall Outlook - Updated Feb 14, 2018
LONG RANGE OUTLOOK from snowforecast.com - Feb 15, 2018

Wednesday, Feb 14, 2018

LONGER RANGE: Saturday/ Sunday (17th-18th) through late next week we expect a busy pattern, with all areas of the west seeing frequent snow, some areas like Colorado should see snow every day it looks like, and with heavy snow for Colorado overall Sunday through next week, more moderate to maybe heavy for Utah and the northern Rocky Mountains (including the inland Northwest)/ Southwest Canada, and mostly light snow across Tahoe, but at least it will be snowing again. Winter is definitely coming back!

--> Late February and into March should be busy for the western US, with frequent storms for Tahoe and Utah, moving across Colorado also as the east Pacific ridge breaks down some (Feb 20th-22nd), allowing strong Pacific energy and moisture to move into the western US and southwest Canada, with abundant snowfall for all areas including those parched in recent months like in California. This should have been the pattern across the western US already, if patterns were anything near "normal" so far in 2018... Do You want to see OTHER AREAS mentioned, email me and let me know... CM
