Today feels more like summertime than springtime, with temps in the 70s and 80s. However, one year ago today, snow, cold, and an incredibly raw north wind paid a visit to Southern Colorado. While highs were limited to the 20s, 30s, and low 40s, the fierce wind made it feel even colder; wind chills tanked into the teens and single digits.
Colorado Springs and Pueblo didn't see a ton of snow; the main story was the wind. Tropical storm force gusts were routine. In fact, the Colorado Springs airport registered a gust of 61mph, while Pueblo topped out at 67mph! Widespread tree and property damage was reported, including this.
What a difference a year makes! I think I'll take today's weather. Meteorologist Branden Borremans
