Warmest September Ever!

Well, if you think it has been warm this September you are right.  Obviously, this is something that we all have known this month.  Here is the skinny on the September stats for a few locations:

Colorado Springs:  Warmest September on record and the 8th driest on record.

Pueblo:  7th Warmest and 4th driest.

Alamosa:  4th Warmest and 38th driest.

September is usually one of our drier months.  So even though we haven't seen that much precip this month there are several September's where it has either Traced or gotten .01".  Doesn't matter much, it has been hot and dry and that is likely to continue for a while. 

Outdoor activities weather...GREAT!  Fire danger and drought...BAD!  Isn't that the way it always is around here?  One extreme or the other and always taking the good with the bad.  That's what makes our weather and climate so interesting...

    @frankie: you might want to lay off the meth. Your new future and new beginning could be when reality starts to separate itself from your fantasy.

    fall colors, actually, there is still good possiblities of viewing colors even including aspens, try the Twin Lakes area , possibly cottonwood pass near Buena Vista, just this last Tuesday, Wensday was in Gunnison area, aspens were still affording good viewing, plus especially the cottonwoods, a much overlooked tree for fall colors, spectacular , go see these, even some cottonwoods in ' isolated groupings around Blue Mesa Res, near Gunnison is affording great color shows. go check them out jon

    It really has been warm this September. This time last year our leaves were starting to change color. I hope October will be a little more fall like and a lot more colorful.

    julio, have you ever seen what a trophy hunter does when he bags a 7 point, ' royal ' elk? he has the head/ antlers mounted so it could be placed on the wall usually above a mantle or above a fireplace, so you can take your snowshovel & do the same with it, it is also what i need to do with mine , it is , belive it or not, 51 yrs old, a true vetern, but now trully retired as you have said, i as i know , this place is finished with getting any snow ' storms ' ever again.. & further more i may see yet having to run the A C in Oct ( ? ) ... jon

    I know it would just be a guess but do you think we will have a warmer winter due to the high temps or do you think it will be a difficult winter to make up for how warm it is now?

    When (if...I should say) winter comes I'll be wondering what I should do with my snow shovel...it works well for the dog doo. Don't have much use for it nowadays...

    Call me strange, but I do enjoy 70 degree weather under perfectly blue skies. That doesn't make me a desert rat by a long shot. Winter will come, and when it does I'll be in Pagosa Springs wondering how I'll get out of my driveway with all the dang snow on the ground :P

    Perfect temps? These temps are far from perfect. You should live in Arizona thenyou can be happy year round. Bring on the fall and winter! Pleeze!

    It's been a funny weather year here in the springs. Typical Spring weather was missing in action, and so it seems will the fall weather. No complaints here because I was really enjoying the fall colors with PERFECT temps and a clear sky. I also enjoy the savings on my utility bills.
