January 21st Record Highs!


Check out the high temperatures from today.  Pretty impressive, considering normal daytime highs are only in the 40's.

The record highs for CO Springs and Pueblo were set back in 1950, so they have stood for quite a while.  While we don't have record highs in the forecast for tomorrow, it will still be quite warm.  Lot's of folks are concerned about this type of weather this early in the year.  They should be.  When you don't see much snow on Pikes Peak and when you are talking about wildfires in January, that certainly isn't normal.  Hope to see a pattern change pretty soon, because we definitely need the moisture.

    yeah. Everyone on all the news stations are doing cartwheels about the weather. Meanwhile, we're almost 10 degrees above the average January temp and of course, significantly below our precip. We have only 10 inches of snow this 'season' and i sure don't see any significant storms on the horizon. I still say we will get less than 20 inches this whole winter. Curse La Nina!
