Grand Lake Touring Center Discussion
Tuesday Nov 13, 2018

Today and Wednesday - High pressure ridging develops, with less wind and some inversion layers setting up, making town colder than the nearby mountain (Aspen proper colder than on the slopes). This happens when we sit under a ridge of high pressure, as colder and more dense air sinks and warmer air rises above it. Many times these layers of warm and colder air become harder to dissipate as they hold for days on end. This time that does not look to be the case.

Thursday through Saturday - After a possible light shot of snow as a "moisture-challenged" low pressure system sweeps in from out of the northwest, we expect high pressure ridging over Colorado to hold into next weekend, for warmer and drier weather in Aspen and western Colorado. 

LONGER RANGE FORECAST (mainly after Nov 15th): Low pressure starts moving in from off the Pacific, with some possible subtropical moisture mixing in at times, and some closed lows that may be taking better aim on Tahoe-Mammoth and Big Bear finally, then moving in for Colorado, likely to affect southern and western Colorado more favorably this period (incl. Aspen-Snowmass) as south and west-facing slopes take the cross-mountain orographics, less favorable for northern and Northwest slopes east and north of Vail Pass... Just in time for Thanksgiving Holiday, snow potential is looking up again. We will be watching. CM
