80 today in Denver, record temperatures all over the state, including Colorado Springs, Pueblo, Grand Junction -
From the Denver Post:

There has never been a hotter February day in Denver, Colorado Springs or Pueblo

Quote:
Friday was the hottest-ever February day in Denver, according to the National Weather Service, with the high temperature reaching a whopping 80 degrees at the airport.

The previous record-high daily temperature in February in the city was 77 degrees, reached in both 2006 and — you’re reading this right — 1890, the weather service said in a tweet. . .

The temperature hit 80 degrees on Friday at Denver International Airport at 1:38 p.m., according to the weather service’s Boulder office. The previous record daily high for Feb. 10 was 71 degrees set in 1951.
. . .
The high temperature in Colorado Springs on Friday was 77 degrees, breaking their record high temperature of the month of 76 degrees set Feb. 5, 1963.

The high in Pueblo was 82 degrees, breaking the old month of February record of 81 degrees last set on Feb. 18, 2016.

For the third straight day on the Western Slope, a record high for the day was set at the Grand Junction Regional Airport. The weather service’s office in Grand Junction said the temperature reached 64 degrees at 11:07 a.m., surpassing the old record of 63 set in the early 1960s. . .

We finally got some rain/ snow in the metro. While I am not sure how much the suburbs got (it does look like south and south west of the city had more snow) the city did not get much.

Looking at late March for a trip to Avon CO.
Anyone know if there's still snow on the ground in an area like that, that late in the season?


Not looking to ski per say, but would like to walk around in the snow.

The latest storm coming through socked I-70 pretty good. Two different road closures at different locations and a slew of wrecks at the Vail Pass summit. Was re-opened late last night, the next wave will hit the Continental Divide mountain passes will hit Thursday.

We haven't had anything more than an inch of snow here Colorado Springs in months. For all of January and February, we barely even had a few dustings. Every time a storm is predicted in the future forecast, they start out with a decent chance, then downgrade the storm to a 10% chance the day before - and we end up not getting anything at all. I'm starting to wonder if March, our snowiest month, will even bring any snow.

I am enjoying the warm days and all, but we need some moisture.

I'm with you, LH. We need moisture badly.

The forecasted storm today was another bust. We had some flurries with no accumulation, and now they are calling for more dry for the next 10 days. I hope that changes...

Last night around 9 pm the temp was 47 degrees and I thought "uh oh." Snowed pretty good in the GJ area and just let up around 5 this morning. Looks like 3 inches on my car, the most snow we've gotten out of a storm this season. Maybe any two storms put together this season!
