Updated for Monday Aug 03, 2020 -

Shorter Range:
We are under a weakening high pressure ridge with some afternoon thunderstorms in the area today, otherwise a mostly DRY west/ northwest wind flow aloft is expected, for mostly sunny weather, and no real chance for thunderstorms in Aspen Tuesday/ Wednesday, as high pressure ridging weakens, causing drier west winds to move in. By Thursday/ Friday we may see increased moisture as the wind flow turns more southerly (low pressure moving into the Northwest US) plus some upper level instability combining with the usual daytime heating (conditional instability) to produce isolated mainly-afternoon thunderstorms and showers in Aspen. This coming weekend (Sat/ Sun) look dry and mostly thunderstorm-free.

Longer Range:
Through August 15th or so (next week) we could remain dry, unusual to be this dry, then we may see a resurgence of moisture from out of the south/ southwest by the 16th or so, with thunderstorms and showers (mostly the afternoon type) again expected for Aspen, helping to keep the foliage nice and green like it is now. SEPTEMBER/ OCTOBER:
With the expected Neutral ENSO, likely becoming "La Nina" this fall, plus trends (not much "monsoon" activity for my farm clients across the Arizona/ California deserts) I am expecting that we will see below average thunderstorm and related shower activity for Aspen and western Colorado in September. Some early snows are more possible this season for Aspens higher terrain mainly (some possible in town as well), plus early cold temperature records, especially moving into October.

It is looking like a "La Nina" is in store for the fall/ winter... more to come... Chris Manly/ Meteorologist
