Arapahoe Basin Discussion
Updated Friday August 17, 2018

Today we expect continued afternoon thunderstorms and showers as high pressure ridging holds strong, while increased moisture and upper level instability move in from the desert southwest after an increase in thunderstorms there.

Saturday we expect a low pressure system to move through, mostly a dry trough but with some increased instability and lingering moisture to work on, for scattered thunderstorms and showers once again. Partly to mostly sunny skies are expected.

Sunday and Monday we expect drier conditions with the exit of the low pressure trough, for mostly sunny and warm conditions, lower humidity, and only isolated afternoon thunderstorms mostly sticking to the mountains around Aspen. CM

LONG RANGE: Next Tuesday and Wednesday (21-22 Aug) we expect isolated to scattered thunderstorms and showers in Aspen and western Colorado again as a low pressure system approaches from the northwest US, increasing upper-level instability and moisture across the region. Mostly sunny skies are expected for the most part during the morning hours, with the usual cloud up in the afternoon/ evening. Next Thursday and through much of late August, we expect isolated to scattered afternoon thunderstorms, scattered+ across southwest Colorado, as high pressure ridging shifts to overhead and allows moisture to move in from the south. The last few days of August we are expecting a Gulf of Alaska low pressure system to affect the Northwest US with some snow possible for high elevation northern Rocky Mountain areas of Montana and southwest Canada. This then dries out Colorado for more breezy/ windy and drier conditions, cooler nights and days. Check our climatology section for detailed climatology info. CM

Low pressure will continue frequently affecting the west coast right into June, with late season upper-mountain snowfalls expected at times for Aspen and western Colorado. Do You want to see OTHER AREAS mentioned, email me and let me know... CM
