This was another long duration type event.  Seems like we've had a few of these this Winter.  Again, the heaviest snow occurred in the southern mountains.  Snow showers were more prevalent east of the mountains.  If you weren't in the snow showers, you likely didn't pick up much snow.  I had just over 2 inches at my house.  Pueblo even picked up between 3 and 4 inches.  Officially, the Colorado Springs Airport picked up just under 3" for the 3 day total.  This continues our "kinda" snowy February.  I know it isn't as much as some of you would like, but it's always a good thing to see "this much" snow during a dry month.

    Well, weather geniuses, what does March hold for us?

    You're right Jon. I checked back on all those dates and while it did tell you the temperature and even a hourly log on the daily page, it did show that it snowed, but it gave every information, but the actual precip. Ironically, it did show the record precip for the day and just because it was a record, it gave the actual snowfall those days. Sept 28-Oct 1 were 4.9, 13.6, 9.4, 5.5 inches of snow. However, it showed April 3 record as being 5.7 in. in 1979. But yeah, the info you want unfortunately, can't be found that far back, for free, at least. If you do find a website, let me know ;)

    Jason; on the ' wunderground.com, web site ', i clicked on the upper left corner, under local weather, clicked on history data, then on the next screen or window, i keyed in the zip code for our area, then the page gives you where you can click on month, day , yr for any time you want to look up data for that date, i noticed when i was doing so, the ' site ' would not give actual occurrance, just look closely, you should see, ' actual precipt, temp, snow, ect & it also gives what the average for the date is, it never displayed the actual data, just the av for the chosen date... try for instance Apr 3 1957, you should see over a foot of snow, but it does not give that, also try Sept, 28,29,30, & Oct 1, 1959, there should be a total of over 33 inches of snow recorded, but it does not display this data,,check it out ...jon

    Once again flippin' Pueblo gets more snow than CS. Well La Nina means we're screwed for snow in CS. Now, El Nino means we're screwed for snow in CS. According to the cheif meteorologist, were in for another 15 years of below average snowfall... I guess I might as well quit complaining. Nothing's going to change any time soon. Brian says wait till March. Brian, I will bet you a starbucks that we will end of below average snowfall again this year. March will produce next to nothing because the temps won't be cold enough for any snow to actually stick. April will be above average temps too with a fair amount of rain...snow is over for this season folks...face it. We may get another nuisance storm or two or three...but noting meaningful. The rest of the country enjoyed a record breaking year of snowfall...enjoy it... some of us in CS are actually jealous. That's it for me...no more complaining.

    These nuisance storms are the worst! So frustrating! What does summer look like? Probably La Nina will be back...hot and dry.

    jon, what area do you want records for? I checked for Colorado Springs and it goes all the way back to 1948. If you still can't get it, what are you looking for specifically?
  • by Julio Location: 80907 on Feb 28, 2010 at 10:23 AM
    Feb. 28 - March 1st Storm.... Just another Worthless weak snow front for the Springs... just like every other weak storm to come here this winter. Sigh....
