March preview: Snow season enters make or break month

Sunday, March 3rd, 2013 4:27am MDT

Despite some help in recent weeks from Mother Nature, Colorado’s snowpack remains quite low as we enter the month of March.  At the current time it is at 75% of average and with time running short on the season, it is now make or break time.

March is historically Denver’s snowiest month and brings about 20% of our annual snowfall.  Heavy, wet spring snow storms can oftentimes bring the entire month’s snowfall total in one monstrous snow.

We also start the transition to spring and severe weather season and the month typically brings our first thunderstorms of the year.  Temperatures climb throughout the month and by the end our average daytime highs are near 60 degrees.
