11/5/09 Record Warmth

After we got the storm out of the way last week, we've really seen some pretty weather around here.  Most of this week was quite warm, with several locations having temperatures a good 10 to 25 degrees above normal.  Today, we broke a few records:

Denver broke their old record of 76 set back in 1945.  Colorado Springs broke the old record of 73 set back in 1983.  Pueblo tied the record high of 80 set back in 2004.  Now, I always worry about record warmth this time of year, because it usually means we'll balance it out with record cold or a good snowstorm or two.  The weak storm coming through on Sunday night and Monday, doesn't look like a big storm, but it could produce some wet snow for areas along the Palmer Divide and Sangre de Cristo Mountains.  Otherwise, nothing too scary headed our way...

    Record highs, nothing "major" in the near future. This sure doesn't look like other El Nino years.

    Julio, it looks like it always does. Above normal tempertures and below normal precip. You like snow? You should move to alaska. They have plenty of snow.
