January 2009 Weather Summary

                                                                          Colorado Springs                        Pueblo                            Denver

Average High                                                            47.4                                        52.6                                 48.2

Average Low                                                             20.5                                        16.3                                 21.6

Mean Temperature                                                  34.0                                        34.5                                 34.9

Departure From Normal                                         +5.9                                        +5.2                                 +5.7

Total Snowfall                                                             3.3"                                          1.3"                                 4.9"

Obviously, the above statistics just confirm what we already knew.  January was a mild and dry month.  February has started out nice, dry, and mild too.  Highs temperatures for the first week of February will be 10 to 20 degrees above normal.  However, I don't think we will break any records.  February can be a pretty warm month.  The record high for Colorado Springs on February 5th, is 76 degrees and 77 in Pueblo.  Both of those records were set in 1963.   We'll be warm, but not quite that warm.

    Darn it. Looks like another potential snow storm has missed us yet again. Thi s La nina stuff is really impacting us worse this year than last year. Hate the dry conditions, but it has to improve sometime, I suppose. Wether guys, does it look like the La nina conditions look like they will get better any time soon? Perhaps the next couple of months?

    wow lots of serious drama in the weather blog. Brian I had a question about La Nina and El Nino. Some of my friends that live in Northern California say that their weather is greatly affected by both of these scenarios, so I was wondering does El Nino and La Nina just effect weather patterns in North and South America or indeed the whole world?

New Mexico near El Paso Tx, i have been there, & what i saw there i am convinced will be reality here SOON, barrel cactus, ocatilla, agaves, spiny grasses, beaver tail cactus, alligator juniper, aole trees, typical Chihuahuan desert country with av. rainfall about 2.5" - 7"- /yr. with snowfall averageing about less than 5" once per every 15 - 25 yrs. Be ready for permanent water restrictions here, no more large lawns soon.... & long terrible HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOT !!!!!!!!!!! summers...
