Powder Predictor

Vail, northern mountains will dry out after five-day snow cycle

Clear skies ahead into the weekend

Good morning. Are you tired yet? Five days and counting as snowfall is being measured in feet in the Vail Valley.

Weather will turn sunny today as high pressure will build in stronger than expected. This morning we see brutal cold again as the caboose of a nearly week-long storm surge comes through town. On-mountain temps for today will barely reach zero, as northwest winds will drop windchills into the negative 20 range. Any snow falling will be light and end by afternoon.

As stated, we see high pressure build in for the next four days, with temps rising each day toward the weekend.

Same forecast for Aspen/Snowmass, although they could see an extra few inches as the tail of the front passes south. Timing couldn't be better as powder hounds are surely tired and there is work to be done in ski towns all over Colorado.

For those of you who couldn't be here to enjoy the snow, here's video showcasing what happened here in "Happy Valley."
