Updated for Wednesday Feb 26, 2020, at 0930L MST

THE NEXT 2 DAYS: (feel free to copy/ paste this "next 2 days" discussion if desired, with credit link back to this page/ snowforecast.com)
Today and Thursday we are under a northwest wind flow aloft as high pressure builds in to the west, with some mostly weak upper-level weather disturbances passing through with some light snow, although we see plenty of sunshine today and after Thursday morning, with some lightly accumulating snow in between in Aspen and across western Colorado, northwest slopes favored, possibly 3 to 6" of snow for favored northwest facing slopes of Summit and Grand County ski areas, through Thursday. Meteorologist/ Chris Manly

Friday and Saturday (28 and 29 Feb) Sunny, blue sky day, with awesome conditions expected under a high pressure ridge on Friday, then lower pressure starts to set up across the central Rocky Mountains on Saturday with increasing clouds. Snow develops Saturday night with the next storm moving in.

Sunday and next Monday (1-2 Mar) We will be dealing with 2 low pressure systems, one significant looking low pressure system moves into California and the southwest (centered over California), on a southward track Sunday into Monday, with moderate snow totals for Aspen, lighter to the north and east, but a second "kicker" low pressure system sweeps through from out of the northwest, colder, and with additional snow totals through Monday night and into Tuesday.

Next Tuesday and Wednesday (3-4 Mar) A couple more storms move through, with more significant snow potential across western Colorado and Aspen, also to northern resorts as well, as all have favorable combinations of energy and moisture to crank out significant snowfall, first to southwest slopes, and then northwest slopes on Wednesday with the second system.

LONGER RANGE: Expect a northwest flow overhead (high pressure centered to the west), due to low pressure targeting the plains states and areas eastward, again the 5th through the 7th of March. By the 8th-10th, we see a pattern change back to storms from out of the west, off the Pacific , more favorable to areas like Tahoe and Utah, but still carrying some good and significant snowfalls to western Colorado and Aspen-Snowmass. This lasts through mid-March. Meteorologist/ Chris Manly
