Yesterday - "Warmer temperatures and not much wind. I expect beautiful weather in Aspen, and still some time to go and check out the leaves"

A fast moving and moisture limited low pressure system moves through tonight and mainly Friday, with some light snow falling in Aspen but mainly on the mountains as we have snow level issues with this one, but snow levels do drop on Friday as the system is ending. A stronger and colder low pressure system moves in Saturday night and mainly Sunday with more significant top to bottom snowfall expected for Aspen and the nearby resorts. Most western Colorado resort areas including Aspen will do well with this one, northwest slopes and Summit/ Grand Counties favored this time.

Another system may clip the area next Monday or Tuesday (21-22 Oct), with mainly the divide and northwest slopes close to the divide getting measurable snowfall, a dusting possible for Aspen. Meteorologist/ Chris Manly

LONGER RANGE OUTLOOK: High pressure ridging dominates the western US and southwest Canada mainly by mid and late next week as the eastern US gets a turn at unsettled weather. It is looking like some seriously cold air and unusual pre-Halloween snowfalls are possible in many areas of the eastern US, with snow possible even to northern Georgia and Mississippi! Around or just after Halloween, expect a shift back to unsettled for the western US, with more snow and probably colder than usual weather, early season additional accumulations for Aspen-Snowmass also. Early November looks busy with storms and snow.
Expect a colder and more snowy winter for Aspen this season. I am thinking early openings again on some great early season conditions. We are in a neutral ENSO pattern (no El Nino or La Nina), leaning to La Nina this winter 2019-2020 I would say. More details are coming. Meteorologist/ Chris Manly
