Spring in Colorado is a roller coaster ride. There are usually days with highs in the 70s and days with highs in the 20s. You can experience several inches of heavy, wet snow and spring rain showers in the same week.
“It’s important to remember these outlooks are just that, especially when it’s a 50/50 chance it’ll be above or below normal. The Pinpoint Weather team will continue to watch for the next change coming with every storm system,” meteorologist Kylie Bearse said.
According to the NOAA spring outlook, the southeast corner of Colorado has a 33-50% chance of seeing higher-than-normal temperatures. The rest of the state has equal chances of seeing above or below-normal temperatures.
