NEWEST DISCUSSION
Updated Discussion Monday Nov 29, 2021 -

A very benign pattern with a high pressure dominance is expected. Temperatures will be milder than average under mostly sunny skies all week. A shot of light and brief snow moves in on Sunday, just a light amount for now (there is some hope in the longer range outlook for December).

LONGER RANGE - It is looking like around Dec 5-7 we see a couple of storms with light to moderate snow, and we change over to large-scale low pressure and stronger/ more potent storms around/ after the 10th, lasting a week-ish (regular snowfalls). La Nina is expected to produce an average snowfall total overall this winter, once winter really kicks in to (mostly) stay this December.


OLDER DISCUSSION:

UPDATED Thursday November 25, 2021

Chilly today after some fresh snow in Aspen, then warmer into this this weekend and early next week under a strengthened/ strong high pressure ridge. A pretty benign pattern is expected until the next snow, looking like it will arrive in early December, like after the first day to few days. I will be watching. Chris Manly/ Meteorologist.
