WEATHER DISCUSSION

Friday May 20, 2022 - A cold front moved through Aspen around 2-3am, taking temperatures form the low 60's to the mid 30's, almost 30F drop...

Updated Thursday May 12, 2022
High pressure ridging builds in with warming temperatures this weekend. A few mostly dry low pressure systems cause some wind in Aspen parts of next week, but for the most part we are looking at warm spring weather, with a few isolated thunderstorms sprinkled in, mainly over the mountains. By next weekend, possibly starting Thursday the 19th, it looks like a strong and cold low pressure system Will move into the western US, causing strong winds and cooling of temperatures, plus some mid and upper mountain snow possible in Aspen. So basically next weekend, around the 20th or so of May, it is looking like we have the possibility for showery and cool weather in Aspen. This is expected to be followed by five days or so of a real warm up, possibly hitting 80+ in Aspen for the first time this season in the last days of May. CM/ Meteorologist
