Spring is sprung with wet weather in Vail, Aspen

Aspen/Snowmass, central mountains in the crosshairs

By Reid Griebling

First day of spring and a strong low sits in the southwest, eyeing the Rocky Mountains. Strong winds will welcome afternoon commuters in both the Vail and Roaring Fork Valleys.

Red flag warnings are posted for much of the Front Range as 60 mph winds are expected in the "City." Mountain valleys can expect winds in the 25-mph range with ridge-top gusts in the 50-60 mph range.

Temps remain warm for today, as this low creeps northward, bringing good moisture and jet stream dynamics.

Tuesday, March 22, looks to be colder and quite windy as we see an associated cold front with the low. On-mountain highs in the low 20's and still gusty southwest winds in the 20-mph range are expected.

Snowfall totals for overnight tonight into Tuesday look light. Morning reports in the 3-5 inch range for Vail/Beaver Creek and 5-10 inches for Aspen/Snowmass. Don't be surprised if you see the dreaded dust layer Tuesday morning as these southwest winds will surely move the desert sands our way.

The central mountains, including Aspen/Snowmass, Crested Butte, and Monarch, could be in for a huge day if temps can drop quickly enough this afternoon and tonight. Hard to say how cold it will become with the origin of this storm. However, up to 12 inches could happen overnight tonight if events work out correctly.

Still an active pattern for the first week of spring, and all we need is just a few storms to really freshen up the mountain slopes. March madness may very well happen on mountain, as I'm sure most of the brackets out there have been busted.
