Arapahoe Basin Discussion
Updated: Monday June 24, 2019 at 1:00am MST

YESTERDAY: "we expect the unseasonably cold low pressure system exit the area, with some lingering showers and chilly late June temperatures expected. The trend will be for clearing, and the nearby mountains will look unusually covered with snow to low elevations, picture time... Clouds clear late day"

Today we see mostly sunny skies and a cold morning, followed by drier air and warmer temperatures, hitting 70 in Aspen, as higher pressure builds in overhead, though we do not see much prominent ridging for any prolonged warm-up yet, though next Tuesday and Wednesday (25th and 26th) could see mid and upper 70's (f) for high temps in Aspen, while low pressure again approaches from the Northwest US. Isolated mainly afternoon thunderstorms and showers are expected between mostly sunny days. CM

LONG RANGE FORECAST: Late next week (27th-30th) we expect low pressure to be affecting the area with increased thunderstorms and showers, then cooler with more unusually late snow accumulations to 10,000 - 11,000 feet. We are still in an El Nino SST (sea surface temperature) pattern, which usually portends a more active "monsoon" thunderstorm/ shower season for the summer, likely kicking in strong with the attendant warming to summer-like temperatures, right after the 4th of July. Fall/ Winter will be under the influence of this El Nino pattern as well. CM
June 21, 2019 - Steamboat getting hit with late June snow, down to the base!
Its snowing across northern Colorado, and more is coming through today and tomorrow, into Sunday.

Aspen will see snow to 8,500 feet, and may even see some snow in town... Welcome summer.
