Does Colorado Springs get fog? Our "fog season" has started and it made me curious. I don't mind driving in it during the daytime, but it makes me nervous at night.

We do, but it's very rare.

One of my favorite weather conditions here is the dense fog we occasionally get on very cold nights, resulting in trees totally frosted the next morning.

Thanks! It sounds like the fog that you get there doesn't last as long as ours does. Ours can start the night before and last until 11am on some days.

I've lived here 11 years and have seen fog maybe fifteen times. Freezing fog can make for slick roads. I have only seen the really thick fog 2 or 3 times.

It doesn't get foggy often, but when it does, it can be pretty intense. I see more fog than 15 times in the past 10 years or so, but it may be because I am a teacher and drive in the early morning. Typically by the time the sun is fully out the fog dissipates. It's also very regional; I live downtown, and there will be no fog, but once I crest the hill by Palmer Park, I descend into fog.
