Snowmass - Aspen Discussion
Updated Monday August 20, 2018

Today we expect continued drier conditions under a rebounding high pressure ridge aloft, for mostly sunny and warmer conditions, low humidity, and some afternoon cloud build-ups mostly sticking to the mountains around Aspen.

Tuesday and Wednesday we expect a big increase in moisture and instability in the atmosphere across western Colorado due to an approaching low pressure system out of the northwest US, and some recycled monsoon moisture from out of the desert southwest, for scattered to numerous thunderstorms and showers developing across the area mainly Tuesday afternoon, then continuing through overnight. We are expecting some good soaking showers between Tuesday afternoon and Wednesday morning, and another round, though decreased (T-storms and showers) on Wednesday.

Thursday and Friday we expect a low pressure system to pass mainly to the north and push moisture out with it, for drier air, warmer days and cooler nights, with mostly sunny skies. If you are headed out for some biking or hiking, rafting, whatever, this is the time to go. CM

LONG RANGE: Next weekend we expect increased afternoon/ evening thunderstorms and showers across western Colorado, scattered to numerous across southwest Colorado, as high pressure ridging shifts east, while low pressure, fairly strong, drops in across the northwest US and allows increased moisture to move in from the south/ southwest (Gulf of Mexico origin mostly). The Gulf of Alaska low pressure system expected to affect the Northwest US (next weekend/ early the following week) with some snow possible for high elevation northern Rocky Mountain areas of Montana and southwest Canada (8,000 feet+ elevation snow is what its looking like). In early September, we expect an increase in moisture and an easterly/ southerly flow (increased moisture) while high pressure ridging jacks temperatures back up above seasonal norms. We do expect good chances for thunderstorms and showers at this time. Check our climatology section for detailed climatology info. CM
