Snow again in Vail Valley forecast, but totals look moderate
Aspen/Snowmass to see active 48 hours
Things will change by this evening, as low pressure moves in from the southwest tonight. This storm was originally touted as a "big one," but that has changed as we are missing colder air. We still see a fair amount of energy and moisture, but the spark to light the fire may not show.
On-mountain temps for Tuesday, March 8, will be in the mid 20s, with gusty west winds reaching the 20-mph range.
Expect 24 hour totals in the 4-8 range for Vail/Beaver Creek, favoring the Beav'.
Aspen/Snowmass will see the same temps for Tuesday, with 24-hour totals in the 6-10-inch range.
The San Juan Mountains in Southwest Colorado should see the most snow by Wednesday, as is typical with the origin and the time of year.
We still see a fairly active pattern start early next week, as Wednesday, March 9, we will see clearing skies and warmer spring temps remain throughout the week. For now, let's hope colder air moves in for another mid-week powder day.

No hooky today Dave, skiing was o.k. but we need more snow. Snow hadn't set up when I left before noon and clouds started rolling in. Dumped a good bit here in Avon from 5:30 to 6:30. Radar is showing good amounts of energy, the question is can it get past the 3 mountain ranges to our south. Still think good totals for The Beav' tomorrow and Aspen/Snowmass could be REALLY sweet. Start doing that snow dance.

It looks like we might be getting another round of snow in the beautiful Vail Valley! Although the forecasted totals seem to be moderate, real estate marketing Cambridge it's always exciting to see the area blanketed in snow. Let's hope for a bit of a snowy surprise!

Hey Reid, this blows. Woke up this morning to disappointing totals and still really warm. It was sunny in Vail all morning, so no doubt setting up the snow on southern and western exposures, and now we're not going to get that much out of what was supposed to be the second, bigger wave? Should have played hooky today, huh?
