Updated for Wednesday Jan 22, 2020, at 0627L MST

A cold low pressure system moves through today, but with most energy to the north/ east, for some moderate ADDitional snow totals today, best for Vail Pass and east under a northwest cross-mountain wind flow, for good orographics there.

On Thursday low pressure moves across the plans and brushes the Colorado mountains with limited moisture and dynamics for Aspen and western Colorado, but enough for some light snow across the mountain and in town.

On Friday high pressure starts to build in, with lingering early morning snow showers becoming partly cloudy (mostly sunny skies). In the evening and overnight, expect a shot of light snow as a fast moving system moves through, into early Saturday to freshen up the snow. On Saturday expect clearing to partly cloudy (mostly sunny) skies as a high pressure ridge builds in again.

On Sunday a large storm looks like it will be developing and preparing to move in for Monday and Tuesday. Aspen could see a foot+ of snow on the mountain, more on the upper mountain. I will be watching... Meteorologist/ Chris Manly

LONGER RANGE: Storms move through every few days through the last few days of January, and into February, as high pressure ridging looks to be more dominant across the southwest US. Fast moving storms will be more favorable to the northwest facing slopes Vail Pass and east/ north, and slow moving cut-off low pressure systems will be more favorable to southern Colorado.
The rest of this winter is looking more snowy and colder than average across western Colorado and Aspen. Meteorologist/ Chris Manly
