Winter climate summary

Posted by Bret B on May 17, 2013, 6:39 pm

Well, I figured it was time for a review of the winter climate data, since it looks like summer is just around the bend! Here's all the gory data:

You can see that February was the coolest month on average, April was the warmest on average, the afternoon minimum RH was up and down, and there wasn't much rain (nothing since Jan 2.)

March had both the hottest day (91.4F/33.0C on March 29,) and the coldest morning (62.8F/17.1C on March 12.)

There was a goodly heat wave in late March/early April for Semana Santa, then it cooled down again until the authentic pre-summer warming trend we are experiencing right now.

I'm still working on compiling all the historical data so we can see what the long-term averages are for each month. At first glance, it looks like we had a cooler-than-normal midwinter, and a warmer-than-normal spring.

Rain-wise, November and January were wetter than normal, February was drier than normal, and the other months were normal.

So now we'll see what the summer season has in store for us. Plenty of heat and humidity I'm sure , but what about rain and hurricanes? We're still waiting for the official hurricane season forecast from the NHC and Colorado State.
