Updated Friday September 18, 2020

This weekend a low pressure system brushes the area with a few clouds, and gusty winds, plus some cooling of temperatures into the 70's for highs. Some showers and maybe a thunderstorm are expected on Saturday as moisture is pulled up from the southwest and combines with dynamics (energy) from low pressure moving through the northern Rocky Mountains.

Dry on Sunday as low pressure exits to the northeast... then, Monday and Tuesday high pressure ridging builds in across the region, with some moisture moves up from the south, bringing in some thunderstorms/ showers each afternoon/ evening. Cooler temperatures are expected due to the clouds and showers.

Wednesday and Thursday (23-24 Sep) it looks like high pressure ridging builds in overhead, with a drier flow of air across the region, and mostly sunny, warmer weather.

LONGER RANGE: We may have to watch for a COLD storm around the 27th-28th of September, which could mean more SNOW in Aspen, a break, then another low pressure system with more potential snow, mainly in the higher elevations. Overall, the west looks high pressure ridging dominant.

FALL SEASON: Colder than average and with above average snowfall in Aspen, this La Nina fall season. More to come... Chris Manly/ Meteorologist
