March 23rd & 24th Snow Totals

While this was just another run of the mill storm for some areas, this ended up being the biggest storm of the Winter/Spring for Colorado Springs and Pueblo.  The main storm only lasted about 3 to 5 hours for those cities, but while it was here, it was pretty nasty.  Check out additional totals below:

This storm brought Colorado Springs pretty close to normal, regarding snowfall.  Pueblo is actually a touch above normal, as you can see in the graphic below.

Obviously, this is small business compared to what folks southwest of Pueblo have had to deal with.  Folks in Rye, Beulah, and Colorado City as well as all of the Wet and Sangre de Cristo Mountains have had some kind of Winter.  Check the total below and laugh if you will...

Yup, since Septemer Rye has totaled 177" of snow putting them 40" above normal.  Doesn't take long to add up when you average about 12 to 15 inches per storm.  Anyhow, Southern Colorado is in great shape in the moisture department and we still have some of March and all of April to go.  Thanks El Nino...

    lately been hearing about indicatons that el nino is ending; with expected increase in hurricane activity in the gulf & atlantic seaboard. well there goes the hope for economical survival, gas price monster will be on the prowl again. so does this also mean that we can look forward to yet another winter of near record low snow amounts here ? what does this bode for moisture here this spring/ summer? increase heat & dry is it ? ... well then hello to cactus & succulents in my garden... jon

    Love the new graphics! Any chance of flooding this spring? Hopefully, it won't warm up too quickly and cause flooding, or our water to just disappear into the air!

    I was so happy when I heard finally we were gonna have a good snow. I have been waiting all winter and now it's spring we have a good one. I for one love snow and hope we get more before it's over. I wished I lived higher in the mts. like in Rye or Durango. They alway's get zonked. Ijust moved here in 2006 from NC and I just love it here everything about Colorado is beautiful.
