Updated Discussion - Wednesday, October 21, 2020

Today and Thursday look warm, and low pressure with rain and snow (mostly light) are expected across Wyoming and Montana, dry for Aspen and western Colorado. Expect an increase in winds, peak temperatures today, as low pressure starts to carve south into the central Rocky Mountains, then on Thursday expect a lot of wind to develop in Aspen as colder low pressure pushes south, creating a pressure-gradient across northern and western Colorado. Later Thursday, expect some light snow to fall on the front range areas and along the divide, mainly north of the I-70.

Friday through the weekend (23-25 Oct) - Progressively cooler for Aspen and western Colorado, as low pressure takes aim on areas mostly east of the central Rocky Mountains, but with enough of a "glancing blow" to cause showers, some snow down to 6,000 to 8,000 feet elevation around Aspen and western Colorado, mainly Saturday and Sunday. This could actually become a significant storm, with some very cold air...

LONGER RANGE - High pressure ridging builds up across the western US again for around 5 days it seems, taking us to about the end of October with mostly sunny, milder, and dry conditions, perfect for some late season hiking and biking, though max temperatures should not go much above 60f. In early November we see a return to what we should be seeing, some early season snows, and colder weather. Chris Manly/ Meteorologist
