Powder Predictor

Wave of wet weather welcomes the weekend

Vail, Aspen see more snow

Although it might feel like spring in the valley areas, snow still falls at the highest elevations as another round of snow will pepper the central and northern mountains, including Aspen and Vail.

Light snow showers will diminish as Saturday, March 26, arrives with 24-hour totals for Vail/Beaver Creek in the 3-5 inch range and Aspen/Snowmass also looking at 3-5 inches.

On mountain temps for Saturday will remain brisk, with highs in the low 30's and lows in the low 20's. Winds will remain strong from the west with gusts over 30 mph likely and sustained winds in the 10-15 mph range.

Saturday will be partly sunny as we see our next system move in Saturday night. Colder than normal temps and lots of residual moisture could make for a great Sunday powder day.

We have yet another system that moves in Sunday night into Monday, giving spring break guests a good chance at some great soft snow. We will keep watch.
