March 1st, 2009:
Yup, February was a dry one. In fact, is was the least snowy February on record in Denver. Denver International Airport only receieved a trace of snow for the entire month. Colorado Springs and Pueblo weren't far behind, picking up .6" and .4" of snow for the entire month. Where does this put us, as we enter March? Colorado Springs is over 15" behind on snowfall and Pueblo is 19" below normal.
March can be a fickle month, producing all four seasons in a short period of time. However, it looks like we will start very warm. High temperatures for the first full week of March will be well above normal, with record highs possible early this week. As I have blogged before, I don't see this pattern changing anytime soon. Fire Danger will be very high, so please use extreme caution if working or recreating outdoors with anything flammable.
