Another active weather weekend in Vail as famed northwest flow returns

Aspen/Snowmass wintry too

By Reid Griebling

The news: cold will finally subside (for us at least) as subzero temps have subjugated Coloradans for a substantial time. I know three days of below-zero temps are downright average for those from the Land of 10,000 Lakes, but when chairlifts at Vail and Beaver Creek are running half speed to keep windchill values down for guests, it's bad.

The good news is temps will begin to rise as the weekend arrives with wind and snow. Tonight, the "City" is seeing its fair share of snow as a weak rotating system has decided to concentrate its energy on the Palmer Divide and areas south.

The great news is northwest flow will again bring numerous short-wave systems to northern Colorado, favoring Steamboat, Winter Park, Summit County, and yes, Vail/Beaver Creek.

Expect on-mountain temps for the weekend returning to normal, with daytime highs in the high teens and 20s and overnight lows dipping into the single digits. Winds will obviously be gusty from the west/northwest, with ridge-top gusts in the 40-mph range at times.

Aspen/Snowmass will see temps in the same range, with winds more from the west.

Snow totals look promising for the next three days, as we are in the same pattern we saw when nearly 40 inches fell in five days a Vail, leaving Beaver Creek, Aspen/Snowmass in the dust. A pattern that typically gets better with each passing day

Expect morning reports to grow as the weekend progresses. Expect light totals for Saturday (1-3 inches), with Sunday increasing slightly (2-4 inches). Monday into Tuesday will only get better, as constant snowfall is expected and ski tracks should fill in nicely.

Aspen/Snowmass will have to hope for residual moisture, as totals will be lighter to the south. Overall, a great way to start the shortest month of the year. We will keep watch over the next 24 and keep you posted for the weekend.

This was for a new and credulous ‘generation’ who, I suppose, have never even heard reference made or seen so much as a parody of the series – which is most unlikely, if I might paraphrase our favorite Vulcan. เว็บหวย
