Winter Park Resort Discussion
Saturday, Feb 17, 2018

Today and Sunday the fast moving low-pressure system exits the state (this morning) and we have some clouds mixed with mostly sunshine, though a stronger and more large scale low pressure system will be ginning up at the same time, just to the north and mainly on Sunday. Winds pick up on Sunday as the cold air out of the north starts to displace the warmer air over the area. This air we expect to move in early next week is looking COLD!

Monday through Wednesday we see cold and large-scale low-pressure developing across the area/ Inland Western US, carving a major trough, and driving possibly limited moisture and piles of strong dynamics (scientific term: "piles of...") into Colorado mainly Monday into Tuesday, with later Tuesday and Wednesday tapering off as a piece of the storm's energy starts to retrograde to offshore of southern California. It looks like the trough axis will be located just to the west, with southwest and west slopes favored again, and heavy snow for Aspen and the San Juan Mountains as well. Winter is definitely here!  

On Thursday expect a break from the snow, briefly, but we may see lingering isolated snow showers, best bet is mostly sunny... This lasts through most of Friday.

Friday night (or Saturday morning) through Sunday we expect more snow from a couple of weaker systems (offshore SoCal system + a system out of the northwest to "kick" this mess through the state), and moderate or more (8"+) of snow is expected for Aspen-Snowmass, and southwest Colorado looks to be favorably affected also. 

LONGER RANGE: The rest of February and into March should be busy for the western US, with frequent storms for Tahoe and Utah, moving across Colorado also as the east Pacific ridge breaks down some, allowing strong Pacific energy and moisture to move into the western US and southwest Canada. This should have been the pattern across the western US already, if patterns were anything near "normal" so far in 2018. More heavy snow is coming to Colorado!.. CM
US Extended Snowfall Outlook - Updated Feb 14, 2018
LONG RANGE OUTLOOK from snowforecast.com - Feb 15, 2018

Wednesday, Feb 14, 2018

LONGER RANGE: Saturday/ Sunday (17th-18th) through late next week we expect a busy pattern, with all areas of the west seeing frequent snow, some areas like Colorado should see snow every day it looks like, and with heavy snow for Colorado overall Sunday through next week, more moderate to maybe heavy for Utah and the northern Rocky Mountains (including the inland Northwest)/ Southwest Canada, and mostly light snow across Tahoe, but at least it will be snowing again. Winter is definitely coming back!

--> Late February and into March should be busy for the western US, with frequent storms for Tahoe and Utah, moving across Colorado also as the east Pacific ridge breaks down some (Feb 20th-22nd), allowing strong Pacific energy and moisture to move into the western US and southwest Canada, with abundant snowfall for all areas including those parched in recent months like in California. This should have been the pattern across the western US already, if patterns were anything near "normal" so far in 2018... Do You want to see OTHER AREAS mentioned, email me and let me know... CM
