If you talk to folks in Southern Colorado about Halloween weather, you will usually hear about how it can be a nasty day. It can be cold, snowy, windy, anything but nice. I decided to look back at the past 4 years and see just how bad it has been. The stats for Colorado Springs and Pueblo are below:
CO Springs Pueblo
2007 High of 44 & Dry High of 56 & Dry ( It got pretty cold during the evening, and it was a chilly trick or treat )
2006 High of 29 & Dry High of 39 & Dry ( The previous day had highs in the 60's and 70's )
2005 High of 50 & Dry High of 57 & Dry ( Pretty nice weather )
2004 High of 55 & Dry High of 62 & Dry ( Rain/Snow showers developed during the evening after a nice day )
As you can see, it hasn't been that bad for the past few years. Sure it was chilly last year and downright cold the year before, but we haven't had any recent blizzards on Halloween. Probably the most notable Halloween Blizzard in the past 20 years, was a huge storm that struck the Midwest in 1991. You can go to the following link and check out the impressive stats: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Halloween_Blizzard
No blizzards in our Halloween forecast. In fact, it will be just the opposite with highs in the 70's for most of us. Enjoy the nice weather, and enjoy Halloween safely.
