December 9th, 2009: Cold, but Not Record Cold...

That's what the map looked like earlier this morning. Some of the coldest temperatures we've seen in quite some time.  Obviously, we are in December and it can get pretty cold.  The record low for Colorado Springs today, is -27 set in 1919.  Pueblo's record low is -22 and was also set in 1919.  The good news is that we will be rid of the Arctic Air, just in time for the weekend.  A little snow, some cold...just what we needed to get in the holiday spirit.

    Rachelle, snowbows are very cool aren't they... Al, the polar jet stream is diving from the prairies of Canada into the Midwest. The subtropical jetstream is cruising from southern California across the Gulf Coast. We are in between streams right now, giving us some pretty quiet weather. Thanks for reading our blog.

    This blast of real cold air ought to help keep the bugs in check for next spring. By the way, where is the Jet Stream located now?

    Wanted to tell you that I saw my first "Snow-Bow" this week. The sun emerged bright from the clouds in the western sky near CastleRock, not long before sunset. There was a snow squall ahead of me on the road, and I saw a rainbow of colors extend down from the coulds and thru the snow, to create what I'm calling a Snow-Bow. I've never seen one before in my life! It wasn't as clear as a traditional rainbow, but it was amazing :) Wow, what an amazing sight...
