How much snow you’ll get during winter in Colorado Springs really varies by where you live. According to KOAA’s meteorologist Mike Madson, last week’s snowstorm gave Monument fourteen plus inches, the Briargate area got nine to ten, Woodland Park and Green Mountain falls got ten or more inches, and the main part of Colorado Springs? Just three to five inches.
So, if you’re scared of snow, I’d probably live south of Woodmen Road, a ways east of the mountains, and west of Marksheffel Road. (The plains east of Marksheffel Road tend to be windy and therefore have lots of drifts and whiteout conditions.)
As usual, the snow mostly melted in the two days following the storm and we were back to beautiful clear skies – seems like Colorado Springs rarely goes more than 24 hours without sunshine. In fact, we had clear skies on Thursday morning before the snow started in the afternoon, and by Friday morning it was crystal clear again!
This morning we were greeted with a little bit more snow; which, even though I was ready for spring, is a good thing since we really need the moisture.
